5.0 out of 5 stars A VITAL DICTIONARY TO HAVE ON YOUR SHELF!
Reviewed in the United States on 26 April 2021
The Dictionary Of Cultural Literacy is the most important book to have on yourself alongside Black's Law Dictionary and Ballentine's Law Dictionary. This 1993 second edition of the DOCL is sentimental to me because it's the exact same one Tupac had in his possession of books he's read in his life. I personally read and learned much from this book. This book will be important to you for political awareness and cultural consciousness. There are politicians who've been to universities and have never read this book. Probably because they rather lean on their formal education. This book will gradually aid you in understanding many terms used today. It definitely brought more clarity and expanded my vocabulary as well. In this country, you better have some knowledge otherwise your opinion will fall on deaf ears. I urge everyone to have this book in their library, schools and homes. To not have this book as an American, is blasphemous and you would neglect your entire consciousness as a person. You'll need it to understand the entire basic structure of our society in America.
