Profit Over People by Noam Chomsky
It can be hard to know where to start with Chomsky. I mean, seriously, how many books can a guy write? But fear not! Profit Over People is my official selection for the Chomsky-curious. Slim, straight-forward, and brimming with his trademark intellectual-teddy-bear-ness, this book should be on every radical's shelf, fledgling or otherwise.
