What Do You Know? provides the reader with a variety of tests that are stimulating and fun. It will appeal to fans of "Trivial Pursuit," but is actually cultural literacy in action, paving the way for greater cultural awareness of its readers.

A treasury of trivia tests on every subject imaginable, covering people, places, and events on everything from art to rock and roll-even crooks and con artists, TV shows, advertising jingles. Each subject has a brief introduction on what the test is intended to show. And there's even an introduction by celebrated TV journalist, Mike Wallace.From Library Journal:
In 1985, O'Neill, a California community college professor, tested his students and was shocked to discover how little they knew about U.S. cultural heritage and current events. His article in Newsweek and appearance on 60 Minutes started shock waves of public reaction. This book contains that test, with percentages of incorrect answers, plus 44 other tests, all with answers. Tests cover real and fictional persons and places, functional knowledge, references and allusions in the media, events of the century, geography, familiar quotations, literature, and fine arts. Trivia buffs and those who want to test their fund of knowledge will enjoy this book. Its real importance, however, may well be as an additional message to educators and other concerned persons regarding the woeful condition of cultural literacy in this country.
