What Book Would You Give Barack Obama?

Publishers Weekly asks "What Book Would You Give Barack Obama?" The first commenter wanted him to read "Nickel and Dimed" by Barbara Ehrenreich and somebody else said anything by Jonathan Kozol.

(Somebody else suggested a book on how to take care of your new puppy. Maybe The ♥G♥ and I can bring Gilbert over to play with the new First Labradoodle.)

Look, he's got Ehrenreich and Kozol coming out the wazoo and beyond, as we used to say. Here's what he ought to be reading if he only has one book: "The Mystery of Capitol" by Hernando de Soto. Read it yourself here at Google Books. If he grasps the concepts in there, then the Ehrenreich and Kozol stuff will fall into line by itself.

What about "How to Be President: What to Do and Where to Go Once You're in Office" by Stephen Williams? Or for decorating tips, I suggest: "Dictator Style: Lifestyles of the World's Most Colorful Despots" by Peter York.
