Why are many English books named with "101"?

Hello,

I browsed on Amazon and found there are many book names in English with "101".

Here are the two book names which I randomly copied from there.

101 Juice Recipes
101 Trauma-Informed Interventions: Activities, Exercises and Assignments to Move the Client and Therapy Forward


English is not my mother tongue. Could anyone explain this?

Thanks!

@iclearwater,
The 101 designation is used by most or all universities as a label for first-year courses. Eg English 101. Thus the use of the designation 101 has come to refer to the basic knowledge in any given area. Plumbing 101, Parenting 101, Car Washing 101, Politics 101

@iclearwater,

you may also come across the "For Dummies" series, a similar concept but with some humor sprinkled in...

@iclearwater,
In this case, "101" refers to a lot of juice recipes, one more than one hundred. It's kind of like a baker's dozen. You get one extra recipe, or one extra trauma-informed intervention for the price of one hundred.

Sometimes '101' is used to imply a very exact number.
