Those of you who enjoy reading Thomas Sowell‘s writing might be interested to learn what he’s reading. He shares some details in his latest column at Human Events.

Among the selections: Burton Folsom‘s New Deal Or Raw Deal, which punctures myths about FDR.

So many myths and legends glorifying Franklin D. Roosevelt and his New
Deal administration have become part of folklore that a dose of cold
facts is very much needed. 

The next time someone repeats one of the many myths about FDR, or tries
to use the New Deal as a model of how we should try to solve current
economic problems, whoever reads this book will have the hard,
documented facts with which to shoot down such claims.

By the way, Sowell mentions his own latest book, the newly released fourth edition of Basic Economics.
