What book would you force all Utahns to read?

Erik Daenitz: The Prince by Machiavelli

Rachel Scott:
The End of Faith by Sam Harris

Jesse Fruhwirth: Retired Army colonel and professor Andrew Bacevich eloquently indicts the current state of the American military-industrial complex in The Limits of Power.

Nick Morgan: The Utah Driver Handbook.

Wallace Greenwell: The Bible, or at least the New Testament.

Scott Renshaw: Absolutely anything that doesn’t automatically reinforce what they already believe to be true.

Josh Deal:
The Alchemist

Nick Clark: Under the Banner of Heaven by Jon Krakauer

Bryan Bale: Forcing them to read anything would be an exercise in futility. Those who most need the information I’d like to impart are the least likely to comprehend.

Dan Nailen: Nixonland: The Rise of a President and the Fracturing of America by Rick Perlstein. Because it’s a great read while being an excellent breakdown of the destructive path of over-the-top partisan politics. Utah’s got some of that, right?

Derek Carlisle: Twilight, mainly because it’s a hidden gem that teaches the reader that it’s cool to be a chase vampire.Second would be their scriptures. If you believe in something you should be informed on what that is. Slaughterhouse-Five could give them the insight of how it’s going to feel when the aliens are in control. Viva La Rasa.

Alissa Wells: The Idiot’s Guide to Driving. Worst. Drivers. EVER.
