I am happy to say that the Great Books Survey is still going strong. Since October of 2010 it has been answered 24,749 times by 2,108 people from people all over the globe. To date, the top five “greatest” books are Athenian Constitution by Aristotle, Hamlet by Shakespeare, Don Quixote by Cervantes, Odyssey by Homer, and the Divine Comedy by Dante. The least “greatest” books are Rhesus by Euripides, On Fistulae by Hippocrates, On Fractures by Hippocrates, On Ulcers by Hippocrates, On Hemorrhoids by Hippocrates. “Too bad Hippocrates”.
