It is primarily through books that we learn from other people. Often great minds. People who may be distant in time or space. People who have the ability to crystallise and capture the thoughts for which we can only grope. There would be no history, no science, nor literature without books - in short there would be no civilization.

There are a number of links to information about books on this site that in turn include links to Amazon where you can learn more about the book, browse other people's reviews and order the book. Here is a short list of the ones that I have learnt the most from.
