Well Well Written and Illuminating book
This is a great book. In essence, it is a survey of the influential ideas of the twentieth century. It covers disciplines as wide ranging as psychology, philosophy, art, mathematics, sociology, physics, etc. It is well written and reading it gives you a perspective on the raging debates and tremendous intellectual breakthroughs the shaped the world we live in now.Was this review helpful?

I loved this reading this book. It took some time to read (it is a big book) but it was worth it. The Modern Mind rewards you with a better understanding of the modern world.

No Illustrations !
What is otherwise a wonderful book is terribly flawed by the complete absence of ilustrations. The visual arts are too important in the story to be left entirely to words. Also, ignore the author's expanations of Einstein's theories. He completely misunderstood the popularizations he read and has written utter nonsense himself.
