Classics with Punch

A joy of reading classical literature is the realization of the extent to which people have not changed combined with exposure to a great writer's ability to spot subtle forms of behavior.

Reading War and Peace and Vanity Fair (the novel please, not the magazine!) not only entertains, but informs, and sometimes staggeringly so. I would make them mandatory reading for business, sociology, and political science students.
