Read in January, 2008

Dangerous statement, but: This has to be one of the most valuable books of the last century. Daumal is writing about our ability to transcend the mundane and reach, literally, for the stars. But he does this in a book that's part Jules Verne, part The Little Prince. The writing is beautifully translated (Roger Shattuck), the story is compelling, and the ideas are memorable. It's short, too: probably a book to re-read every year or two.
