Republic, Lost: How Money Corrupts Congress--and a Plan to Stop It - Lawrence Lessig

I really, heartily agree with Lessig's argument—his take on what's wrong with the political system, and what needs to be done about it. This book isn't the best imaginable accounting of it, but it is still well worth reading. And encouraging others to read. So, you know, read it.
