Crossroads to Israel by Christopher Sykes( Book )
45 editions published between 1965 and 1973 in 4 languages and held by 1,186 libraries worldwide
The story of the establishment of the state of Israel from the Balfour Declaration of 1917 to the first seventeen years of the new state is a confused and often tragic one. The story is told here as fully as possible. Successive British Governments played parts in the story ranging from the magnificent to the shabby. Mr Sykes, who lived in Palastine during the thirties, endeavours to tell the story fairly and sympathetically
No ordinary genius : the illustrated Richard Feynman by Richard P Feynman( Book )
14 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 1,114 libraries worldwide
This intimate, moving, and funny book traces Feynman's remarkable adventures inside and outside science, in words and in more than one hundred photographs, many of them supplied by his family and close friends. The words are often his own and those of family, friends, and colleagues such as his sister, Joan Feynman; his children, Carl and Michelle; Freeman Dyson, Hans Bethe, Daniel Hillis, Marvin Minsky, and John Archibald Wheeler. It gives vivid insight into the mind of a great creative scientist at work and at play, and it challenges the popular myth of the scientist as a cold reductionist dedicated to stripping romance and mystery from the natural world. Feynman's enthusiasm is wonderfully infectious

The seven deadly sins by Ian Fleming( Book )
2 editions published between 1962 and 2002 in English and held by 64 libraries worldwide
"This sparkling curiosity was inspired by Ian Fleming, who in 1962 had the intriguing idea of asking eminent British writers to comment on the deadly sins for the London Sunday Times. The result is a colletive display of wit, erudition, and common sense, as each author essays his or her assigned vice."--Cover
