Yesterday I asked on both my Twitter and Facebook accounts for my friends to recommend to me 4 books they wished everyone would read. I didn’t want to hear books they thought *I* should read, but the things they thought would benefit everybody. I got a ton of responses and they vary enormously (my friends come from a lot of different perspectives. I was thrilled that most of them were things I had not yet read so I have a lot of reading ahead of me.
My own 5 suggestions (I get 5 because I say so) were:
Demon Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark by Carl Sagan
The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander
A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson
A Billion Wicked Thoughts: What the World’s Largest Experiment Reveals About Human Desire by Ogi Ogas and Sai Gaddam
Why Are You Atheists So Angry? 99 Things that Piss Off the Godless by Greta Christina
What are your top books that you wish everyone would read?
