Praise For Read This Next: 500 of the Best Books You'll Ever Read…
— Publishers Weekly
“[Book groups] would be well advised to bypass the best-sellers in front of bookstores and libraries and pick up this clever (and useful) reading guide. This book’s authors have an eye for offbeat and unappreciated classics […and] taste that spans the highbrow-lowbrow cultural divide.”
— Chicago Tribune Books
“Sometimes the biggest problem a book discussion group faces is finding a book that everyone wants to read. Here’s the solution: get a copy of Read this Next...open it to a page at random, and read whatever book is discussed on that page.”
— Bob Etier, Technorati.com
“[A] brisk and often funny guide, bristling with snap judgments, the snappier the better.”
— Wall Street Journal
