To celebrate the holidays we asked some of our favorite people in publishing what their favorite book was. Let us know in the comments what your favorite book is and be sure to check back throughout the week for more “favorites”.

The book that stuck with me this year was Alan Weisman’s The World Without Us. With so much attention directed to the environment lately, it’s a thought experiment with teeth. The imagery of a human impact on the earth – that millions of years from now Manhattan could be a lush forest while the only evidence of human beings may lie in degraded plastics – not only lingered but sparked conversation.
