1. "Fast Food Nation," Eric Schlosser. Single-handedly gave McDonalds a migraine. A must read for all meat lovers.

2. "Crazy White Men," Michael Moore. The best selling non-fiction book in 2003. Extremely well done. Well documented. Not a single sentence has been disputed.

3. "Silent Springs," Rachel Carson. An environmental classic. Apparently not on Bush’s "must read" list.
4. "Nickel and Dimed," Barbara Ehrenreich. A well documented expose’ on the welfare to work debacle.
5. "Reefer Madness," Eric Schlosser. This guy seemed to come out of nowhere. Another extraordinary work. Documents the underground economy: drugs, pornography, and cheap labor.

6. "Working People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do," Studs Terkel. Studs is a great Chicago character.

7. "The Gnostic Gospels," Elaine Pagels. What the big boys left out of the Bible. Louie, Dewey, and Huey would cry.

8. "Wisdom of the Ages," Wayne Dyer. An excellent book, although I’m not overly crazy about the author.
9. "Sacred America," Roger Housden. Explores how numerous people around the country express their spirituality. A breath of fresh air.
10. "Tuesday With Morrie," Mitch Albom. This is the smallest best book that I’ve ever read. A must read for anyone interested in writing, reading and/or life in general.
