bookshelves: owned
Recommended for: those who like lists of books
Read in January, 2006

I bought this book in March next year, despite the 'must' in the title. I confess that I have an inherent mistrust of books that exhort, rather than invite, me to do things.

Other people's lists are always interesting. Here is a link to the review I just posted on

David It's the combination of that 'must' with the idiotic number of 1001 that frosts my eyeballs - it seems overtly obnoxious. Anyone writing a book like this isn't doing so with the primary motivation of helping other readers.
