Utilitarian Literature in Today's Society

What do you guys think is a good example of utilitarian literature in today's society? I'm sure you know of John Mather's books and the like, but that was in the day of puritanism.

Well John Stuart Mill is pretty much the standard. His work is non-fiction though

What do you mean by "today's" society?

Like where can you read on utilitarianism, or what popular culture outlets display aspects of utilitarianism?

The latter of the two. I need to find something that regards to modern utilitarianism.
