Here's a refreshing change from the usual drivel on Sunday shows. Face the Nation hosted a panel of authors to discuss their books, but also books they would recommend for the President.

Here are the panel's recommendations:

Terry McMillan, Who Asked You?:

Michael Connelly, The Gods of Guilt:

George Saunders, Tenth of December recommends:

Rick Atkinson, The Guns at Last Light, suggests

I'm reading Doris Kearns Goodwin's latest on Teddy Roosevelt and William Howard Taft, which I think is her best book yet. It has me riveted, and should definitely be on the president's reading list.

What would you add to the list?

Can you help us out?
