What Arianna's Reading In April: A Hot Button Beyond Left And Right

Arianna's reading a new book for April -- the fifth pick of HuffPost Books. If you've kept up with our series, you know that there's going to be a site-wide discussion of a topic that will change your life. So far we've covered learning to slow down, we've investigated who's really running our government, we've even talked about human beings evolving from Homo sapiens to Homo empathicus, and yesterday we completed our discussion of the importance of financial literacy and popular capitalism with the 10 things we can each do to fix capitalism.

This month's pick addresses a major hot button in politics and the economy, one over which much of the country--left and right--is more than a little exercised about, so come back later today to find out what Arianna's chosen to read.

If you're interested in previous Arianna's Reading book club picks, take a look at these discussions:

Carl Honore's "In Praise of Slowness"
Janine Wedel's "Shadow Elite"
Jeremy Rifkin's "Empathic Civilization"
Matthew Bishop and Michael Green's "The Road From Ruin"
