I love books about books and I have a small collection of them.This book is one of my favorites because of its' structure.It is organized by author and tries to answer the questions: "Where shall I start?" and "Where shall I go next?"With each article describing the author's style, listing some books with which to start, and suggesting which authors are similar in style or genre.There are also menus of books by topic scattered throughout the text that provide suggestions for reading.I believe this is one of the most useful reading references for both inexperienced and experienced readers.The author. Kenneth McLeish has not only authored this delightful book, but he is also the co-author (with Frederic Raphael) of The List of Books — another favorite and a book I would encourage you to seek out.
