There are many books that leaders of tomorrow are required to read in order to become successful people. The required readings skew toward the humanities—science and engineering classes tend to assign fewer titles—and not surprisingly, toward the Western canon.In the US, Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley’s Frankenstein is the most taught work of fiction whereas in history titles, George Brown Tindall and David Emory Shi’s textbook, America: A Narrative History, is No. 1.  The Communist Manifesto is the third most taught in history, and is the top title in sociology.
