In 1978, when Michael Hart's controversial book The 100 was first published, critics objected that Hart had the nerve not only to select who he thought were the most influential people in history, but also to rank them according to their importance

In 1978, when Michael Hart's controversial book The 100 was first published, critics objected that Hart had the nerve not only to select who he thought were the most influential people in history, but also to rank them according to their importance. Needless to say, the critics were wrong, and to date over 60,000 copies of the book have sold. Hart believed that in the intervening years the influence of some of his original selections had grown or lessened and that new names loomed large on the world stage.

A ranking of the most influential persons in history. A Citadel Press Book Published by Carol Publishing Group.

A list chosen by Michael H. Hast, from the book '100 most influential people in the world'. He chose people on a ranking of who had done the most to influence the world. I recommend reading the book as it offers an interesting insight into the influence of different individuals. As the author notes, ‘Influential’ does not include a judgement on whether they influenced the world for the better or worse. Muhammad (570 – 632 AD) Prophet of Islam.

This book is a wonderful compendium of people who were the the greatest influences on our world. Unfortunately, time has made it somewhat out of date, since the pace of technology has been exponential and it's impossible to judge the impact of many of our greatest scientists and leaders. Nonetheless, it's still interesting to wonder who is number 7 and why he's more important than number 8. One might not always agree with Mr. Hart, but it's always interesting to read his justifications for the rankings he makes. I bought this copy for my granddaughter, since my copy is worn out. This is a great source of cultural literacy for everyone.

This is an excellent book if you want to deepen your knowledge of history, if you want to refresh what you already learned in school or wish to get acquinted with lesser knowned but still highly important people in the history of mankind. And so, the book is in fact a collection of short bios of the author's list of the most influencial persons in history. Michael Hart made historical Giants like Confucius, Aristolde or Alexander the Great seems more vivid and genuine to me.

Some people really stands out in terms of achievements such as Louis Pasteur, and you'll wonder why men like Abraham Lincoln or Winston Churchill have been left out.
The fun really is to mentally argue with the author, which I must admit is what makes the effort of going through the book valuable. I'm not giving 5 stars to the book mainly because some bios where rather stark or too technical for me, even if Hart made a nice effort to render it all in comprehensible form.

In Summary: Intelligent analysis by well informed authors.

This book should be read by all humans, regardless of their race, religion, geographic location, culture, etc. It should be required reading for all students, because it will teach them what many people don't know or never learn.

These authors looked at people with honesty, and without prejudice. They looked at how these people affected all aspects of human development; including law and order, finance, history, philosophy, war, social behavior, society, justice, equality, welfare, ethics, and many other areas. They documented how the selected people affected the lives of others not only in their life time, but for all times to come. Their analysis also included scientific achievements, but it was not the ONLY factor, as many others writers have done in their books.

Great Job! You should have received a Nobel Price for this!!! You have my vote!!!

This book gives you a good synopsis of historical figures. However, I think lack some research and biased in terms of it's speaking for many historical personalities. There could be more work done before publishing and writing about so much influential personalities of the past.

One of the 5 best non-fiction books I've ever read (and I have a library of about 3500 books).

This book had a great influence on me and I bought it for my daughter 35 years later. It's still in print. It is a survey of history made personal, covering all fields of human endeavor and all periods. It deals with people and events that one might never encounter in school or the press, but which are, nevertheless, vital to understanding civilization.

The 100 has been a life-changing book for me. It has "unlocked" history for me - allowed me to relate to it and retain information - like no other book I've read.

The book is entirely evaluative. It consists of very short chapters, each about one of these hundred figures. Each chapter discusses the person's life, and why Hart has ranked him or her as more or less important than the others. The criteria he seems to use are:

* How greatly did this person influence the world, especially our everyday lives?

* Would progress have happened without this person? When or how would it have been likely to happen without this person's accomplishment?

* Did this person do it alone, or with the help of others?

Hart has an amazing overview of world history, and his perspective is often different from the norm, or certainly from what is presented in textbooks. Each person I read about, I've read about elsewhere; but Hart consistently pulls together the information in a way that makes it finally make sense to me. He dispels many common myths about world history along the way.

I wish Michael Hart would write another book about his second 100 most influential people!!
I have owned three copies of this book. One was the old edition, one was lost in a fire, and one I recently purchased to replace my last one. This is one of the few books I ~really~ have a soft-spot for.
The rankings are ridiculous any-which-way you cut it. Its almost hopeless to 'rank' people in such a fashion. There are few metrics which can be applied, there are no championships, no rings. And history is a funny thing.
The 'thing' about this book is the collective group of people and the perspective Hart presents. Hart doesn't cut people out if they are controversial (Adolf Hitler for example), nor does he give them more 'influence' than they deserve. Each account is as complete as neccesary and well thought out.
Some interesting misses and some possible mistakes but a great book to have long conversations over. -Ali
