5An Excellent Survey!
By David LaGrone
As I hoped, this is an encyclopedia of the title subject! It gives me enough information about each entry to "acquaint" me with the subject of each article. Yet, there is sufficient depth for me to determine relationships to related topics or to decide if I want to learn from a more focused, in-depth source.

Since my private library is primarily a reference library, this fits in VERY NICELY! Excuse me, now, while I get back to exploring in this book!

5absolute must have
By john bradley
Wonderful addition to any bibliophiles wish list for "must have"! Origins of ideas from the Eastern perspective, an often neglected point of view. Useful to determine world views not referenced to Classical Greece and its' systems of formal logic. Necessary for the scholar to understand alternative cultural counter points from other ancient civilizations. An absolute joy to read and study.
