This book has a wonderful collection of Voltaire's writings - all the necessary stuff, well-organized, and the book is nicely printed and bound. Good font, nice paper.

You can open it virtually anywhere to find wondrous writing to fill ten minutes or ten hours, as the case dictates.
I'm about to order another, since a borrower seems to have forgotten its rightful home!

If you're into Votaire, you'll want this book. If you're not.... you should be. Voltaire offers something for everyone. Short, powerful reads filled with his wisdom. I like that he was not so full of himself as to not have a sense of humor and be human.

TERRIFIC SAMPLER OF THE GREAT MAN
Clever
Incorporating the Philosophical Dictionary into this paperback along with the standards Candide,Zadig,and Micromegas makes this a must for any small library. The "Dictionary" portrays Voltaire's intellectual genius and writing flair in no uncertain terms.This is a marvelous reference item.
Lightbinder
One of the most important philosophers of the European Enlightenment, Voltaire deserves to be studied with representative samples of his writing.
