Face The Nation Panelists' Reading List For President Obama

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?:

All over but the Shoutin'
All over but the Shoutin'
Author: Rick Bragg

Michael Connelly, The Gods of Guilt:

George Saunders, Tenth of December recommends:

Rick Atkinson, The Guns at Last Light, suggests

Thank You for Your Service
Thank You for Your Service
Author: David Finkel

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?
