Essential Philosophy books

A Listmania! list by Amazon Customer
The list author says: "Here is a collection of books which are essential for a well rounded knowledge of philosophy. By no means is every great book of philosophy included in this list; it's just a starting point based on books in my own library.

I certainly don't endorse or agree with lots of what these authors have to say, but a well rounded education must included a wide variety of opinions to help you focus and develop your own ideas."
