My Thoughts:

Having been out of school for quite a few years (including college) it is amazing how many things I have forgotten, and I'm one of those who seeks out learning opportunities very regularly.

Sometimes when my kids bring their homework to me for help, I can't even remember how to perform certain math problems, who was the President of the United States in which order, etc. I'm sure you know what I am talking about!

This book is a great help to refresh my memory and it made me laugh!
