I'd say the most important book I read during the past year was the current edition of How to be Invisible by JJ Luna. My second best was The Leaderless Revolution by Carne Ross. Ross was a British Diplomat who came into his career as a firm believer in government's ability to "do the right thing." After years of experiencing the ineptness, bureaucracy, and impersonalization of government, he left and concluded that society wold be better off under anarchy.
