It’s our Dear Leader’s birthday today: Gordon Brown is 57 years young. He's a famous bibliophile - and I figured we could send him a list of books. Here’s five to start with.

1) Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff – how to stop control freakery leading to misery

2) Wikinomics – why hierarchies are collapsing and the age of big government really is dead

3) Littlejohn’s Britain – he can take a view of his government from the bottom up.

4) Words That Work – Frank Luntz on why repeating “stability” seven times a day is a route to lose elections.

5) The Power of Charm - because it’s never too late for self-help.

Can CoffeeHousers think of any more?
