Editorial Reviews

Christopher Lehmann-Haupt
The most attractively laid out and compactly informative guide that I know of to books that are currently in print.
New York Times
Los Angeles Times
A catalogue that is both scholarly and accessible, that challenges the reader without overwhelming, that skirts the academic but refuses to pander to popular taste. By the manner in which The Reader's Catalog presents what is essentially an attractively annotated list of books, it must be called a triumph.
Library Journal
Concerning the online component, which is new to this edition, the editors promise that 'we will make available the entire Reader's Catalog, together with an expanded database of over 300,000 other titles -- virtually every book really available in the country,' thus competing directly with such popular electronic booksellers as Amazon.com. Though it lacks the retrospective depth and rigorous selection criteria of the six-volume Reader's Adviser, this work is a browser's paradise. Librarians, too, will find it helpful for the preparation of bibliographies and collection development work .

Newsday
The catalog is discriminating yet expansive, a feat of editing that anyone who has wasted time rooting out data in the weeds of the Internet will appreciate.
Union-Tribune San Diego
The idiosyncratic nature of The Reader's Catalog is what makes it so iresistible -- and valuable.
