Super-Pop! offers a maximum-pleasure, minimum-effort way to become smarter, happier, and more likely to survive your next family function (or a shark attack).

With new insights on old classics and fresh ideas for jaded eyes, Super Pop! makes sense of pop culture – and then puts pop culture back to work!
