What do you consider the most influential books in history? As simple as that question may sound, it can be a rather controversial one. Are you interested in the sciences, the humanities, or a mixture of both? Personally, good philosophic or historical reads trump any other – although I do enjoy the occasional science fiction novel
With a fantastic plot, interesting development, and an honestly perfect, rather humorous ending that actually made me laugh, The Revelation of Herman Smiley is definitely a book I’d recommend to anyone interested in philosophy, religion, or humanities in general. And even if you’re not interested in any of those things, you’d be surprised at how much you’ll learn from this 167 page book.
