Bush’s reading list

The BBC reports on Bush’s reading list:

His reading includes When Trumpets Call: Theodore Roosevelt After the White House by Patricia O’Toole, which is about the former leader’s African safari and his attempt to return to politics after leaving the White House in 1909.

He is also reading Imperial Grunts: The American Military on the Ground – an account of the daily lives of US soldiers as told by Robert Kaplan, who accompanied several units overseas.

He is an “avid reader,” said his spokesman, spreading mirth throughout the land.

So, what would you put on his reading list?

The Best and the Brightest, to understand how even smart people go wrong.

Oedipus Rex, for some insight into his own psychology.

  1. I’d add Chris Mooney’s “The Republican War on Science”, although W wouldn’t accept or believe anything in the book.

  2. I’d cram a copy of Chomsky’s “What Uncle Sam Really Wants” down his throat, followed by a copy of “Confessions of an Economic Hitman” as a chaser.

  3. ‘the last night on earth poems’ by Charles Bukowski

  4. The Magic Mountain by Thomas Mann

  5. The Pet Goat.

  6. Lawless World: America and the Making and Breaking of Global Rules–From FDR’s Atlantic Charter to George W. Bush’s Illegal War by Philippe Sands and The Truth (with jokes)
    by Al Franken

  7. The Bible. The asshole should at least *know* what he talks about.

  8. The Secret Agent by Joseph Conrad

  9. How about incoming reports from the CIA, this time for real?

  10. The Selfish Gene. The Blind Deathmaker. Who stole my brain?

  11. Dubyah could hardly read the graffiti on
    a bathroom wall , let alone the books attributed
    to his “attention”. Maybe Tony Blair told him it would be a good idea to feign a farthing’s worth of
    literary acumen.
    “Thanks f’r the suggestshun Tony, but I tried
    acumen a while back, an’ all them needles done
    bothered my spine!”

  12. George, what about reading some books like Stupid White Men, Fahrenheit 9/11 reader, Sex, Lies and Politics or even Bill Clinton, My life, to find out how a true president ruled?

  13. Discovering your market helps you to genuinely end up becoming a great “expert” and brings about greater self-assurance, larger inspiration
