In the week in books we covered a number of titles that would make great holiday gifts including Christopher Reich's new financial thriller, The Prince of Risk (Review, Interview, Excerpt), Ludwig von Mises' magnum opus, Human Action (Special Guest Review) and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's Unintimidated (Review). More to come on Scott Walker's book in the near future.

We also got some great book recommendations from the National Review's Kevin Williamson on holiday gifts for your progressive friends and family members, TheBlaze's very own Buck Sexton, National Security Editor, Real News Co-Host and Host of the Buck Sexton show, former CIA agent plus all-around good guy on the books

every Blaze reader should pick up on intelligence, and libertarian lawyer extraordinaire and chief architect of the Obamacare challenge, Randy Barnett on restoring the Constitution.
