Computer Shopper, January 1995
"...the multimedia content is thin, not very relevant, and
adds little value...But what you gain is the full, searchable text of 1,900
works by 180 authors. Many of the included titles are classics of drama,
poetry, and philosophy; some may be familiar, but others are sure to be new
discoveries. For example, there's the enlightening text of six lectures by
Michael Faraday on the burning of a candle."
"There are also more modern authors represented, such as
Mark Twain and John Steinbeck, as well as non-Western materials, including some
translations of writings about Buddhist doctrine. Many entries also include
introductory notes that provide background information and interpretation of
the material that follows. If you're looking for in-depth excerpts from classic
works, or simply want to read up on a particular topic or author without having
to buy a ton of books, Great Literature Plus for Windows can give you
everything but the dusty smell of old leather bindings."
