Ask the MB: MB Reading List

Ask the MB: MB Reading List
Q: I read Class which you suggested and it was a great book. It opened my eyes to what class is. Now everywhere I go I am sizing things up. Any more books your protégés should read?
--Vik

Q: Love your site! Do you have some reading suggestions? You already mentioned Fussell's Class, which I agree is just hilarious. As a backgrounder for that I'd suggest Veblen's Theory of the Leisure Class. Looking forward to any other recommendations.
--Jochen


A: These are two of about a half-dozen emails we've received regarding a recommended reading list. While there's only one Class, here are a few other MB-endorsed books you can get through by Labor Day:

BAD Or, the Dumbing of America, Paul Fussell
Red Lobster, White Trash & the Blue Lagoon, Joe Queenan
Why Evolution is True, Jerry A. Coyne
The Modern Drunkard, Frank Kelly Rich
