Review: Books that Changed the World

User Review  - Carol Rose Stark Neal - Goodreads

Wish I had read this book back in the 50s. I am actually reading the 9th edition published in 1956, but I plan to read the 2004 edition after I have digested this one. My partner and I read and discuss one book per road trip. Correlation of ideas provides a thread. Read full review
