I am finishing up Elizabeth Warren's Book as of now and was wondering If anyone had any suggestions on books for the progressive. So far I have read:

If you haven't read one of the books or any of them in that matter, I highly reccomend them. They were truly wonderful. But yeah, I would love to have more books to read and are wanting reccomendations from progressives.

Your personal library might welcome Twain.

I enjoyed this and have it in a Kindle app for pc.

Bertrand Russell wrote some good stuff too, sometimes free ebook downloads available.

"Griftopia" and "Divide" Matt Taibbi

"Free Lunch" David Cay Johnston

"Tear Down This Myth" Will Bunch

"Free Trade Doesn't Work" Ian Fletcher

"In Bed With Wall Street" Larry Doyle

"Winner Take All Politics" Hatcher & Pierson

"When Corporations Rule the World" David C. Korten

"The Party Is Over" Mike Lofgren

"Deadly Spin" Wendell Potter

"The Great American Stickup" Robert Scheer

"Democracy Inc." Sheldon S. Wolin

"This Changes Everything" Naomi Klein

Special mention for "Money and Power"--Wm Cohan, subtled "How Goldman Sachs Came to Rule the World" It's a detailed history of GS. Only in the last chapter does the author reveal his views on the enterprise. However, throughout the history the discerning reader will ask himself out loud, "How could this be?"

Here's what the feud and reconciliation between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson can teach us about civility

Thom plus logo Donald Trump did not invent the art of the political insult but he's inflamed the level of vitriolic public discourse and incivility to a new low unmatched by other presidents. In a tainted tradition that has permeated our history, other presidents have not been immune to dishing out acerbic insults against one another.
