Jacket covers from four titles on the Esquire 75 books every man should read listSeveral years ago, Esquire magazine published a list of "the 75 books every man should read," touting it as "an unranked, incomplete, utterly biased list of the greatest works of literature ever published."  Despite criticism that it only contains one book written by a woman - ironically, A Good Man is Hard to Find by Flannery O'Connor - the list has a nice balance between classics and contemporary authors, humorous and serious.  With summer reading just around the corner, there are plenty of ideas here to keep guys reading all summer long.  Scan the Esquire list with cover images here or see a text-only list that could be printed here.
