Review quote

Praise for the 50 Classics series "Tremendous. Because the range and depth of the sources are so huge, the cumulative reading effect is amazing. Alternatively, it educates and edifies, affirms and inspires. Often both."--Stephen Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People Butler-Bowdon has made a name for himself as an expert in personal development literature-the breadth of thought is far-reaching and inspiring.--The Sunday Mail, Australia A terrific compendium of the best from famous classics to off-beat unknowns, distilled to the point of joyous clarity.--Richard Koch, author of The 80/20 Principle A refreshing tour of political thought unmoored by traditional chronological organization.--Library Journal
