Tom Butler-Bowdon

Through his award-winning "50 Classics" books, including 50 Economics Classics (2017), 50 Politics Classics (2015), and Philosophy Classics (2013), Tom Butler-Bowdon has devoted his life to “more people knowing more.” Tom’s work is based on the idea that every subject or genre will contain at least fifty books that encapsulate its knowledge and wisdom. By creating a list of those landmark titles, then providing intelligent commentaries on them, readers are led to great writings they may not have discovered otherwise. Tom was working as a political adviser in Australia when, at 25, he read Stephen Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Captivated by it and other books in the personal development field, he left his career to write the bestselling 50 Self-Help Classics, the first guide to the personal development literature and a winner of the Benjamin Franklin Award. This book was followed by 50 Success Classics (2004); 50 Spiritual Classics (2005); 50 Psychology Classics (2007); 50 Prosperity Classics (2008); and 50 Psychology Classics (2013) all published in the US and UK by Nicholas Brealey. Bringing important ideas to a wider audience, the 50 Classics series has sold over 300,000 copies and is in 23 languages. Tom is a graduate of the London School of Economics (International Political Economy) and the University of Sydney (Government and History). Visit his website
