Booking Through Thursday

Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Booking Through Thursday and a different question is posted every week.  

Have you ever used a book to instruct someone of something or is there anyone for whom you would like to do that? (I don’t mean a text book for a class, but a work of fiction or non-fiction that would get a certain message across either through plot or character). What is the book and what do you wish to impart?
I have to be honest and say that I haven't ever really done this.  I mean I make recommendations based on what I think people will like, or if I've been totally blown away by a book I won't shut up about it for weeks or months etc but I've never done it with a view of teaching someone something.

  6. I haven't really done it to my peers!
