"Butler-Bowdon is so good at distilling the essence of these books that you may feel you don't have to read them. He is a true scholar of this type of literature."
"A tremendous resource ... Because the range and depth of sources are so huge, the cumulative reading effect is amazing. Alternatively, it educates and edifies, affirms and inspires. Often both."
Stephen R Covey, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

Douglas Stone, Lecturer on Law at Harvard Law School
"A kaleidoscope of inspiration ... insightful commentaries on each classic and biographical information on the authors. A unique overview."
