Would a post summarising some non-EA books that I think EAs would find interesting be useful? I'd look to include a brief overview of the ideas of each book, my personal enjoyment of it and why it might be pertinent to a certain cause area.

Some initial ideas:

The Emperor's New Mind, Sir Roger Penrose
Natives, Akala
Foundation, Issac Asimov
The Pig That Want's To Be Eaten, Julian Baggini
The Discourses, Epictetus
Why We Can't Wait, Martin Luther King Jr.
On Writing, Steven King
Passing, Nella Larsen
Down and Out In Paris and London, George Orwell
Red Mars, Kim Stanley Robinson
The Gulag Archipelago, Aleksandr  Solzhenitsyn 
Look Who's Back, Timur Vermes

I welcome any suggestions for how I might develop this idea :)
