Which five books would you recommend to an 18 year old?

Dur­ing EA Global San Fran­cisco 2017, there was a panel dis­cus­sion called “Cel­e­brat­ing Failed Pro­jects.” At one point, Nathan Labenz, the mod­er­a­tor, asks, “What are some pro­jects that you guys are har­bor­ing in the backs of your re­spec­tive minds that you’d love to see peo­ple un­der­take even if, and maybe es­pe­cially where, the chance of ul­ti­mate suc­cess might be pretty low?” In re­sponse, Anna Sala­mon says, “There’s a set of books that pretty of­ten change peo­ple’s lives, es­pe­cially 18 year old type peo­ple’s lives, hope­fully in good di­rec­tions. I think it would be lovely to make a list of five of those books and make a list of all the smart kids and mail the books to the smart kids. This has been on the list of ob­vi­ous things to do for the last ten years but some­how no­body has ever done it. I didn’t do it. I don’t know. I re­ally wish some­one would do it. I think it would be re­ally high im­pact.”

If I had to choose five books re­lated to effec­tive al­tru­ism, I would prob­a­bly choose:

1. Do­ing Good Bet­ter by William MacAskill

2. 80,000 Hours by Ben­jamin Todd and the 80,000 Hours Team

3. The Life You Can Save by Peter Singer

4. An­i­mal Liber­a­tion by Peter Singer

5. Su­per­in­tel­li­gence by Nick Bostrom

How­ever, I doubt that Sala­mon meant to limit the se­lec­tion to books re­lated to effec­tive al­tru­ism. If you could choose five books on any topic, which five would you choose?
