Original price 35 cents and falling apart, and furthermore written before I was born, this was my introduction to influential books. Good thumbnail sketches. Still holds up.

Not a book to be reread often and I have let 50 years lapse between readings. Meanwhile, I managed to read five of the sixteen books listed. I confess, it was like penance in most cases, going back to school, not reading for pleasure but to see if I could read, digest and absorb important information. I read this one sort of as a Cliff's Notes for the other books that I knew I would never actually sit down and read. ( )

Let's start by saying this book is over 60 years old but out of the sixteen books covered I've read one (Uncle Tom's Cabin); have another which I still intend to read (The Prince) and I have not heard of two (Mahan's The Influence of Sea Power on History and Mackinder's The Geographical Pivot of History). Split into two sections - The World of Man, which covers 10 books, and The World of Science, about 6 books. Each section is in published chronological order - from Macchiavelli to Hitler and from Copernicus to Einstein. I like the way that Downs talks about his selections, a bit of background to the author and the times their writings first appeared; a bit about the actual book; and then the impact at that time and why he thinks that they have had a lasting impact. It hasn't encouraged me to actually get around to reading the selections but at least I am more informed about these influential works. ( )
