The Bedside Baccalaureate

These books will teach you what you should have learned in college. Structured to maximize clarity without compromising the integrity of the issues, each book has 20 courses divided into 18 one-page essays written by professors from leading universities and authoritative lecturers. Trace the development of Einstein's theory of relativity using thought experiments similar to those used by Einstein himself, learn about the anatomy of the Internet through explanations of the technology behind websites and email, or refresh your knowledge of Italian Renaissance art. The essays are interspersed throughout the books, not printed on consecutive pages, adding variety to the reading experience and replicating the heady cross-pollination of ideas encountered during intellectual discourse. Other topics include globalization, schools of Buddhist thought, rocket science, the worldview of Karl Marx, Shakespeare's tragedies, the stock market, and the rise of modern China. 400 pages each.
