Content is probably geared towards the 8th or 9th grade level. Unless you were raised by wolves, you probably won't find this to be a useful reference.

I don't necessarily subscribe to his theory of education, but this is a good reference book.

Bought this book 20 years ago, and still refer to it. I believe they have updated editions now.
