University of Texas professors have compiled 50 books they recommend incoming freshmen read this summer.
To encourage the new students, the UT profs will sit down with the kids at summer's end and have a book discussion.
It's a great list, and includes some heavy hitters, like Daniel Kaneman, the Nobel economist. His book may be the weightiest, in fact. And it also may be the most important in terms of BIG ideas the students should understand.
I guess you could quibble about some of the entries, but I wouldn't. I have read a lot of them, and there's not a stinker on there.
