  1. Amnity Shales, “The Forgotten Man” – a revisionist history of the FDRs policies on the Great Depression.Mark Steyn, “America Alone”Benjamin Graham “The Intelligent Investor”. Considering how the market has tanked, people should learn again what is the time-tested prudent way to invest – solid companies with solid balance sheets sold at a discount. There will be opportunities to purchase a lot of good companies in the next while under the new Obama-Pelosi recession.Charles MacKay “Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds” – understand the tech and real estate bubble so it doesn’t happen again.Also recommend Eric Hoffer “the True Believer” on mass movements – kind of explains B.O.’s rise.
