useful as review or starting point
This is a good memory aid for books you may have read long ago, or books with which you want a nodding acquaintance for cultural literacy. While it's OK for helping you pick future reads, the compendium itself is getting a little dated. Also, I'd classify some of the works covered as more as "self-development" than spiritual. There are few theolgical-spiritual or Buddhist infused selections - more the well-known (old) classics and more recent pop-psych spirituality types.
It is dry - not meant as a relaxing or indepth coverage of any of the authors. What you see in the product add is what you get. If you are heading for a desert island, better to pick one good book on spirituality and take that instead.

A Little Dry
The technical coverage of the 50 texts was good - what would have helped was a little more colour or emotion by the reader to help make the various messages come alive. It was much like hearing a thesis covering 50 popular works -- so was sometimes a little dry. Still a good reference for one who wants to know about various spiritual works.
