 I'm pleased to report that this work is fairly popular with our readers.  We had our doubts at first: did anyone alive today actually care about developing literary taste?  Fortunately, the answer appears to be, "yes."  Mr. Bennett is a lively guide, who is disarmingly direct in his opinions and discriminating in his choices.  The books he recommends remain worthwhile, and may still be read nowadays with much pleasure and profit.  -- D J McAdam
