50 plus one Greatest Books You Should Have Read is a masterpiece of information for educated individuals who want to expand their horizons or simply impress friends at a cocktail party. George Walsh and his advisory panel looked through the world's literature to find those books, both fiction and non-fiction, which have the greatest impact on writing, government, international politics, religion, the arts and sciences. The list is international in scope and spans the centuries, from Plato's Republic to Dickens' Great Expectations; this is a stellar resentation, which will round out any education. You have the advantage of not only learning about the authors and the books themselves, but will gain specific commentary on why each title is so important and how its impact had national and international implications. Many of the books chosen for this list have survived centuries and are considered essential for a liberal education.
