Are We a Nation of Low-Brows?
It is charged that the public is intellectually incompetent. Is this true? It is
once given the chance. And we shall make the price so inviting, that there shall be no excuse on the ground of erpense.
Without Cultural Leadership The main criticism, as we find it, is that the people support ventures that are unworthy, that represent no cultural standards. The public is fed on low-brow reading matter, low-brow movies, lowbrow theatrical productions, low-brow music, low-brow newspapers, low-brow magazines. We think the criticism is unfair in that it does not recognize the fact that the public is without cultural leadership. Those who have the divine spark get off by themselves. We believe the public has never had a real chance, never had an opportunity to get acquainted with the great and the beautiful things of life. Given half a chance, the public will respond.

And it must be done at a low price, because the average person's pocketbook is not fat. As it stands, the publishers charge about five dollars a volume, and then wonder why the people stand aloof.
We believe we have a way to find out if the people are interested in the deeper problems of life. And the first thing we decided was to fix a price that shall be within the reach of the person with the most slender purse.
We have selected a library of 25 books, which we are going to offer the public at an absurdly low price. We shall do this to find out if it is true that the public is not going to accept the better things when
All Great Things Are Simple
Once the contents of the following 25 books are absorbed and digested, we believe a person will be well on the road to culture. And by culture we not mean something dry-as-dust, something incomprehensible to the average mind-genuine culture, like great sculpture, can be made to delight the common as well as the elect. The books listed below are all siniple works and yet they are great-all great things are simple. They are serious works, of course, but we do not think the public will refuse to put its mind on serious topics. Here are the 25 books:
We believe there has been enough talk
