Yoko Ono's best books

Yoko Ono is a musician and performance-art pioneer. Her new album is Between My Head and the Sky.

For The Week magazine, she named a best books list. One title on the list:
Confessions of an Economic Hit Man by John Perkins (Plume, $15).

This book gives you a true picture of American world politics that we have not been told. While at consulting firm Chas T. Main, Perkins claims to have worked as an “economic hit man,” cheating developing nations out of trillions by convincing their leaders to accept development loans that ultimately turned into massive debts.
Read about another book on the list.
