A simple explanation will satisfy most people if information is all they are
interested in - i.e. they don't want to actually *do* anything with the information.
The problem arises when someone wishes to argue a point or a theory - with
partial information they are deadly! At this point, to prove or explain their error,
a more in-depth understanding of the subject is required - then they should read a
book and/or take classes and/or get a degree.
