Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing Without Organizations

Another cool looking book to read, this time by Clay Shirky!

Here Comes Everybody is about why new social tools matter for society. It is a non-techie book for the general reader (the letters TCP IP appear nowhere in that order). It is also post-utopian (I assume that the coming changes are both good and bad) and written from the point of view I have adopted from my students, namely that the internet is now boring, and the key question is what we are going to do with it.

And why don't we consider this an open thread for book recommendations -- fiction, non-fiction, library-related or not.
