This is like the “recommend a good book” threads. But more authoritarian.
What book should any intelligent thoughtful person (ie any SDer right?) have read?
I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT CLASSICS. I MEAN RECENT BOOKS.
Not that that isn’t an interesting question too. But I mean recent books.
What’s something recent you think people need to read?
I thought of this because various threads here made me think of:
“Guns, Germs and Steel”- A very interesting consideration of the varied and sometimes rather mundane origins of human society. It’s the idea that the origin of human culture is varied and possibly mundane (this plant grew here, this animal was not dometicated there) that makes this a worthwhile book.
And “Stealing Jesus”- Written by a Christain who apparently likes fundumentalism even less than I do. It’s given me a new appreciation of Christianity and a renewed contempt for Pat Robertson.
That what I thought of off the top of my head. What else?
