Chris Kluwe's six favorite books

Chris Kluwe is a NFL punter and an active promoter of equal rights for all Americans.

His new book is Beautifully Unique Sparkleponies: On Myths, Morons, Free Speech, Football, and Assorted Absurdities.

One of Kluwe's six favorite books, as told to The Week magazine:
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card

Card's novel about children trained for space combat is an amazing story about childhood and what it means to truly understand others and oneself. It's unfortunate that the author, who's been vocal about his anti-gay views, appears in real life to have entirely missed the points about empathy he made here, but his book is still well worth reading.
Read about the other books on Kluwe's list.

Ender's Game is on Jennifer Griffith Delgado's list of the 11 most mind-blowing surprise endings in science fiction.
