The Guardian has put up their list of The 100 Greatest Non-Fiction Books Of All Time

After keen debate at the Guardian’s books desk, this is our list of the very best factual writing, organised by category, and then by date.

You damned well missed Adam Smith, but most of the politics area I’d agree with.

At any rate, I’m thinking I’ll see how much of this list I can knock off this summer.

  1. At least they went for The Rights Of Man not Common Sense… (Don’t read Marx & Engels if you’re at all tired. It’ll cure your insomnia, for sure!)

    I feel terribly under-read now. Apart from the science section, there’s very few I’ve read. On the up-side there’s a helluva lot of oldies there, so Gutenberg should be our friend :-)

  2. I felt the same way! I was like, I’ve read some of these, but so many more I haven’t. Yes, good idea, as soon as my class is over, I’ll start searching for them.
