Description

This application contains 10 Complete Books in 1. Each book is presented in an impressive reader that has many convenient features including: font-type and font-size adjustments, bookmarks, audio notes, and text searching.

Included in the 10 Books That Changed The World are:

1. The Holy Bible

The Bible is the central religious text of Judaism and Christianity. The exact composition of the Bible is dependent on the religious traditions of specific denominations. Modern Judaism generally recognizes a single set of canonical books known as the Tanakh, or Hebrew or Jewish Bible.

2. The Qu’ran

Islam holds that the Qur’an was revealed to Muhammad by the angel Jibrīl (Gabriel) from 610 CE to his death in 632 CE. The Qur’an was written down by Muhammad’s companions while he was alive, although the prime method of transmission was oral.

3. Common Sense

Common Sense was a pamphlet written by Thomas Paine. It was first published anonymously on January 10, 1776, during the American Revolution. Common Sense presented the American colonists with an argument for independence from British rule at a time when the question of independence was still undecided.

4. The Rights of Man

Rights of Man (1791), by Thomas Paine, posits that popular political revolution is permissible when a government does not safeguard its people, their natural rights, and their national interests.

5. The Magna Carta

Magna Carta required King John of England to proclaim certain rights (pertaining to nobles and barons), respect certain legal procedures, and accept that his will could be bound by the law. It explicitly protected certain rights of the King’s subjects, whether free or fettered—most notably the writ of habeas corpus, allowing appeal against unlawful imprisonment.

Magna Carta was arguably the most significant early influence on the extensive historical process that led to the rule of constitutional law today in the English speaking world. Magna Carta influenced the development of the common law and many constitutional documents, including the United States Constitution.

6. On the Origin of Species

It introduced the theory that populations evolve over the course of generations through a process of natural selection. Darwin’s book contains a wealth of evidence that the diversity of life arose through a branching pattern of evolution and common descent

7. The Wealth of Nations

An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations is the magnum opus of the Scottish economist Adam Smith. It is a clearly written account of economics at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, as well as a rhetorical piece written for the generally educated individual of the 18th century - advocating a free market economy as more productive and more beneficial to society.

8. US Declaration of Independence

The United States Declaration of Independence is a statement adopted by the Second Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, which announced that the thirteen American colonies then at war with Great Britain were now independent states, and thus no longer a part of the British Empire.

9. The Communist Manifesto

The Communist Manifesto, was first published on February 21, 1848, and is one of the world’s most influential political manuscripts. Marx does not have a lot to say about the precise form that communism would take, focusing instead on an analytical approach to the class struggle (historical and present) and the problems of capitalism.

10. Uncle Tom’s Cabin

Uncle Tom’s Cabin; or, Life Among the Lowly is an anti-slavery novel by American author Harriet Beecher Stowe. Published in 1852, the novel had a profound effect on attitudes toward African Americans and slavery in the United States, so much in the latter case that the novel intensified the sectional conflict leading to the American Civil War.

Free but not worth it.

:
Free but not worth the price. Slow, worked intermittently and then failed to load. Good idea, though.

3/5 stars

Pretty neat

:
It loads just fine for me no crashing.
But I just wish it would allow me to change the back ground. I haven't tried all the books but the "hardwood" floor in the back is distracting and makes it a bit hard to read. Also wish I could zoom in, and how do you bookmark?
It looks like there us a place to select a past bookmark but while I am in a book I cannot see a place to make a bookmark. :/

But I love the idea and would enjoy it SO much more if u can change the backgrounds

But it's really neat and I love most of the selection

4/5 stars

Forgot a few

:
Maybe it should have been 20 books but there are a few that could have been on here. I don't know the criteria for this selection but I think that Dante's Inferno should have showed up. It was definately influential and still is today. I also think the bookmark feature could have worked a bit better. Other then that great app.
