Classic books from Penguin!

penguinclassical, originally uploaded by ubs_blogger.

To borrow a phrase from Muhammad Ali, the books in the Penguin Great Ideas series shook up the world. Between the covers of each of these deceptively slim volumes—with their deceptively simple designs—a reader will find a lifetime's worth of pondering.

Titles include: Common Sense by Thomas Paine, The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli, The Inner Life by Thomas รก Kempis, Why I Write by George Orwell, On the Pleasure of Hating by William Hazlitt, On Natural Selection by Charles Darwin, Why I Am So Wise by Friedrich Nietzsche, On the Shortness of Life by Seneca, The Christians and the Fall of Rome by Edward Gibbon, Meditations by Marcus Aurelius, On Friendship by Michel De Montaigne, & On Art and Life by John Ruskin.
