I love when people put together "syllabi" as introductions to obscure or prolific artists or media, that specify the "proper" order a body of work should be introduced in order to get the best experience. This was inspired by this recent comment
; a similar one I remember is here
. The AV Club's Gateways to Geekery
feature is also quite good. Please provide me with more of this type of guide!

I'm primarily interested in books, music and film/TV (genres, artists, etc.), but am also open to other subjects. (I also enjoyed Witold Gombrowicz's A Guide to Philosophy in Six Hours and Fifteen Minutes
, for example.) I'm interested in both published guides like this and personal guides to people's pet interests.
