Book Club Selection SuggestionSubmitted by tpaine on Tue, 10/02/2012 - 15:55
I moderate a monthly book club and we read books from all over the literary spectrum. We do however, often pick books for our club that have a theme that coincides with the month we'll be discussing the book. For example we read, "Fahrenheit 451" during July because it is a common high school summer reading book. That being said, I'd like a good political book to recommend for our club in the spirit of November being the month in which we vote.
Ideally I'm looking to recommend a book that opens readers' minds to dispel the fallacies to which so many non-awake people subscribe. We aren't a political book club so I'm not trying to club readers over the head with something hardcore like Hayek or something highly partisan since we have readers from a varied political background.
What book(s) opened your mind to the realities of our political system?
