Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
The Wisdom of the Great is a collection of worldwide famous writers of all genres, including philosphers, literary figures, scientists, et al. It is a good reference book for those who wish to further their studies on one or more of the authors in this collection. The book is well-written and the arrangement is very well-organized for its readers. There is an introductory paragraph on each writer followed by a short piece written by that specific writer. Overall, I liked this work and highly recommend it to those interested in this particular scholarly work.
