Art of Manliness' 100 Books Every Man Should Read 2016

Today we present a revamped list of 100 books every man should read over the course of his lifetime. It's a library that centers not on sheer enjoyment (though you'll find that too), but on the books that expand mind and soul, build new mental models, and allow you to become more culturally literate and thus better able to participate in the Great Conversation. These are the books you'll keep thinking about long after you've finished the last page (even when, or perhaps especially when, you disagree with their ideas), providing cognitive leftovers you'll be chewing on for years, and decades, to come.
