Just a quick perusal of the top of the List: I 've read 1, 2 4, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 17, 18, 20, 23, 24, 25, 26 and a fair smattering of the rest.
Never heard of it. I'd better check the library. I hated "Animal Farm" and "1984."
Thanks for the heads-up!
"Silent Spring" and "Darwin's Black Box" made this list? Just damn. :-(
They also left out "Gravitation" by Misner, Wheeler and Thorne.
Oh, geesh. My reading list just got even longer.
Thanks a lot.
I actually found that book in the Andersen collection (along with a whole bunch of other books with "bibliomania" and "biblophile" in the titles).
The list is interesting and for my 2 cents I would've included T. Wolfe's "From BauHaus to Our House" insted of either Mau-Mau or Electric Kool-Aid. Although both of those books are good in their own right, BauHaus destroyed Modern Architecture completely, utterly and immediately.
I also would have liked to have seen B Tuchman somewhere on the list simply because she made history readable and in that way has been quite influential, I think, on a number of historians since then.
