Books You Should Read

This section will list the top 100 books that every educated and liberal thinking person should read in their lifetime. Eventually we will also add links to short summaries for each work, commentary, links to sites dealing with the author or book, and (where available) an audio book so you can "read" the books by listening to them during your commute to work.

Not everyone will agree with our choice of the best 100 books, but we hope that you will read some of them. We also acknowledge that our list is biased in favour of books written in English, though many foreign works available in translation will also be included.
