College in a Nutskull: A Crash Ed Course in Higher Education
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


He's back. Anders Henriksson, author of "The New York Times" bestseller "Non Campus Mentis" (retitled "Ignorance Is Blitz"), returns with even funnier, nuttier, more outrageous material culled from the actual exam books of real college students. And it's a hoot that covers all subjects of the core curriculum, including: " American History" "The Underground Railroad was built as the nation's first public transit system." "Art" "Cubism is art from Cuba." "Religion" "Moses led his Islams out of Egypt. Bananas from heaven arrived to feed the hungry people. These events are described in the Book of Zeus." "Philosophy" "Plato did his thinking in the Cave of Al Gore." "Economics" "The theory of surplus value is Marx s idea that you always shop with coupons." "Music" "Bach's sacred choral music includes the B Minor Mess. . . . All one million of his famed works can be found in his BMW. He had over one hundred children and was, of course, very famous for his work with his organ. Two of his successful sons were Jesus Christ Bach and Bacherini." "Literature" "Jay Gatsby moved to East Egg because it would be a good place to raise his chickens." And "Psychology" or is it "Theater Arts" "Most people are either straight, gay, or thespian." Published in the irresistible form of a spiral notebook, a pure parody of a course-by-course study guide (complete with doodles), "College in a Nutskull" is stuff that just cannot be made up bloopers and blunders and desperate attempts to bluff the right answer, woven together to give a hilarious, unintentionally brilliant report on the state of American higher education. A comedy, that is, for anyone not paying tuition. "
