100 Books in the Essential Man’s library

Sunday, May 18th, 2008

List of 100 books every man should read. I recognize a good number from high school english class, but I have some catching up to do in the “quintessential American Novel of the 50s-60s” and the “classics from Antiquity” categories. Saving the list for use over the summer.

Here is the blurb:

There are the books you read, and then there are the books that change your life. We can all look back on the books that have shaped our perspective on politics, religion, money, and love. Some will even become a source of inspiration for the rest of your life. From a seemingly infinite list of books of anecdotal or literal merit, we have narrowed down the top 100 books that have shaped the lives of individual men while also helping define broader cultural ideas of what it means to be a man.

Whether it be a book on adventure, war, or manners, there is so much to learn about life’s great questions from these gems. Let us know in the comments which of these you loved, hated, and the books that meant a lot to you and should have made the list (you can even get really indignant about your favorite book). And without further ado, this is our list.
