Revise and Resubmit: What Should Obama Read?

by Conor Friedersdorf

One editorial feature discussed but never implemented at a defunct Web magazine where I once worked was Revise & Resubmit -- the idea was to find good ideas that were poorly executed by other magazines, and to redo them as they should've been done.

The Huffington Post today published a feature wherein its audience suggested what President Obama should be reading on summer vacation. I think Daily Dish contributors can do much better. If you're game, what I'm looking for are title, author, and a short description of why it would be valuable for the president to read the book (or magazine article) you're recommending.

E-mail conor dot friedersdorf at gmail dot com and I'll followup by posting a bunch of responses.
