Q&A Friday #28: What 5 Books Do You Think Everyone Should Read?

by John Hawkins | December 2, 2005 11:45 am

Question: “If you had to pick a set of, say, 5 or so books that were required for every American to read, which 5 books would you choose? They can be any kind of books, fiction, non-fiction, it’s up to you.” — SKatuska

Answer: 5 books, huh? It’s tough to pick out just 5, but let me give it a go:

How to Win Friends and Influence People[1] By Dale Carnegie (For a politer society)

Basic Economics[2] By Thomas Sowell (This could impact people’s thinking on everything from taxes to rent control to Social Security)

The Wars of America[3] by Robert Leckie (If you don’t know when and why we’ve fought, you don’t get American history)

The Way Things Ought to Be[4] by Rush Limbaugh (A little dated, but if you want to understand conservatives, read this book).

Radical Son[5] by David Horowitz (If you want to understand liberals, read this book)
