Keeping with the Spirit of Giving this season, what book do you think EVERYONE should read and if you could, you would buy it for all of your family and friends?
There is one book that I think everyone should read, but most people already own a copy (or two or three). Whether or not you believe what it says, it is a cultural touchstone and everyone should read it. (FWIW- I also believe that everyone should read religious works from outside their religion. I think it helps your own belief system.)
Aside from that obvious selection, I’d like everyone to get on board with Dave Ramsey’s financial plan. Even if you feel it is too extreme for you, everyone can take away nuggets of truth from this best seller.
And, finally, everyone needs a good piece of fiction. My current favorite is an AMAZING book by John Berendt, author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. The best part about this fiction is that it is not! Full of twists, turns and intrigue, this well told tale is a true story that reads like masterful fiction. Every few pages I would flip to the back cover to confirm that it said “non-fiction”! I am eagerlly awaiting Berendt’s next tale.
What about you? What book would you give to everyone this year?
