Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0968495311, Paperback)

The world classics of non-fiction literature are a treasury of human knowledge and wisdom. The idea of a "classic" implies something that endures, enriches the human mind, and uncovers moral truth. This collection encompasses many of those literary works, produced in the crucible of genius and time, which demonstrate the human search for knowledge and wisdom in that "classic" sense. This compendium of 100 condensed world classics abstracts the most basic essentials of these great historical works of genius into a simple format that is accessible and attractive to the average reader.
