Books That Inspire 2003


 
The Discoverers
Daniel Boorstin


The Discoverers is that rare book that answers questions that one wonders why they were never even thought of to be asked. The book celebrates the history of the people who came before us that discovered so much of what we just take for granted today … it is exciting to read. If you do not know why there are seven days in a week, for example, read The Discoverers. Thoughtful, insightful, well written and can be read just one chapter at a time about different discoveries. Nobody is completely educated without reading this book.
