I chose the to complete The Minor Level
You’ve taken a couple classes in World Citizenship and decide to go ahead and get the minor. After all, you’ll learn more stuff and you can still have a practical major! For this level, you need to commit to three books, from at least two different categories.

My proposed reading list:

  1. The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make A Big Difference (Sociology)
  2. The Wal-Mart Effect (Economics)
  3. Gonzo: The Life Of Hunter S. Thompson (Biography/Culture

I read The Tipping Point earlier this year, but I still haven't reviewed it. I thought it was interesting, for sure, but I'm not entirely certain if I agree with all his claims. I'm looking forward to reading what you think!
