The Torchlight List: Around The World In 200 Books
A brilliant road map for discovering history, science, civilization, and the human condition, this engaging record recommends must-read books: those so revealing about times and places that they take the reader beyond day-to-day concerns into a magic realm of knowledge and imagination. From Arthur Koestler s take on the universe and Barbara Tuchman s view on 14th-century life to F. Scott Fitzgerald s impressions of American morality and Robert Fisk s analysis of the West s history of intervention in the Middle East, this engaging account is an idiosyncratic and endlessly interesting tour of the world through literature."
