Every time that I sit down to look something up in this set of books, I am awestruck. How any group could accomplish this is beyond my comprehension. This set of volumes is a college education in itself. My volumes are so used that they are falling apart but I keep sticking them back together.
It is designed great. It has an Index and it is easy to follow. The trouble is once you look up an idea and start following it through this dictionary - your day is over.
If you consider yourself an idea person, this set is for you.

Books written by Richard Noble - The Hobo Philosopher:
"Hobo-ing America: A Workingman''s Tour of the U.S.A.."
"A Summer with Charlie"
"A Little Something: Poetry and Prose"

meines Erachtens gehört dieses Werk in jeden Haushalt, Haha! Zumindest in die Haushalte, die sich für Ideen der Welt und Existenz interessieren. Bestens gemacht. Hoffe auf ähnliche Werke. Dieses wird ja auch nicht jünger!
