In late 2008 I posted The Best Education-Related Books Visitors To This Blog Read In 2008.

I’d like to do it again this year.

Feel free to leave your recommendations in the comment section of this blog and I’ll hold them in moderation until I print the whole list.

The books could have been published earlier. The only requirement is that you’ve read them sometime this year. They might not be obviously connected to education — just briefly explain how it is connected in your mind.

Please leave the title of the book; author’s name; why you like the book (or books) so much — please keep the explanation to no more than two or three sentences; and how you’d like me to describe you.

Deadline — December 30th.
