Prime Prime Ministerial Reading Material

We’ve previously covered US President Barack Obama’s reading habits. Now Melbourne’s Grattan Institute has released a suggested summer reading guide for the Prime Minister. The thinktank has suggested Julia Gillard read books it believes “say something interesting about Australia and its future”. The books are Judith Brett’s Quarterly Essay, ‘Fair Share’; Jan Gehl’s Cities for People; Michael Wesley’s There Goes the Neighbourhood; an article entitled ‘Balancing the Risks, Benefits, and Costs of Homeland Security’; Matt Ridley’s The Rational Optimist; and Frank Moorhouse’s Cold Light.

You can review the full list here, with profiles on each book. The list is an annual event - here’s last year’s.

What books do you think our PM should read over her summer holidays?
