My dad is a retired union dockworker turned Fox News watcher. My Mother is conservative-lite, after getting Palin's book last X-mas stated, "She's not a politician but is a patriot.".
I can't give them anything as obvious as the books suggested in this thread
. If the book is about a former conservative's journey to the left or Howard Zinn diatribe, they will be a tipped off and not read it. The title or subject matter needs to be aligned with general interests but maybe have them think in more critical terms. Maybe something along the lines of A Short History of Everything, but you know...fact checked. Its a tall order, I know you won't let me down.
