Huffington Post published an article on NAS's list of recommended books for college common reading! The article explains our rationale for the books we picked: 

For their own list, the association selected books based on intellectual diversity, length, ambition, lack of cynicism, narrative and complexity in non-fiction and importance of ideas and clarity if writing in non-fiction. 

It includes a slideshow of the first 12 books on our list. You can check out our page with the full list here

Thanks HuffPo editors!
