Format: Paperback
This is a good collection which includes many of Hazlitt's most celebrated essays while giving a nice selection from his output overall. Paulin's introduction is also very insightful.

Kindle version without table of contents 16 Nov 2014
By Anselmus - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Buyers beware: the Kindle file doesn't have a table of contents. It's hard to believe that a publishing house of the stature of Penguin should be so careless.
