Book Thread

BOOK THREAD….I was sick yesterday and didn’t post, but since someone suggested this in the comments to Friday’s book post, here’s an open thread on the topic of books. Specifically, if you could recommend only one book to the world, what would it be? This is not a “desert island” question, where you’re picking a book for yourself, it’s the single book you would most highly recommend to, say, the entire readership of this blog.

Sans explanation, since I’m still feeling a little woozy, I’ll kick things off with The Power Broker, Robert Caro’s spellbinding, Pulitzer-winning biography of New York’s Robert Moses. If you’re only going to read one book from my bookshelf, that’s it.

What’s yours?
