    God's delusion by Richard Dawkins I guess, but I prefer to read fiction books.

    Battle Cry of Freedom by James McPherson. Hands down the best single volume historical book on the US Civil War, IMO.

    I very much enjoyed John McEnroe's autobiography.

    Ben Macintyre's Agent Zig-Zag is another.

    i could list countless books on cars,music and ales, but their credibility really stems from my own interest in these things rather than their credibility as a work of non-fiction.
    Fun Male ler in the UK. Sometimes a very ticklish and willing lee!

    feel free to say hello, pics & info in profile, I would be happy to talk to any of you about anything, especially fellow UK dwellers.

    Thanks for the recommendation/reminder to read this book-- it has been on my 'must read' list for quite some time, but I've been distracted. I'll definitely read it shortly.

    Baghdad Yesterday: The Making of an Arab Jew by Sasson Somekh

    Flapper: A Madcap Story of Sex, Style, Celebrity, and the Women who Made America Modern by Joshua Zeitz

    Populuxe by Thomas Hine (1950's cultural history book)

    The Man Who Thought His Wife Was a Hat - which is a collection of stories of rare neurological disorders. The titular story is a man whose brain would make bizarre associations, and in that case he was leaving the doctor's office and looked at his wife, and his brain went "My wife>my wife's head>hats go on heads>that must be a hat" and he literally tried to grab his wife's head with the intention of wearing it.

    Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman - Richard Feynman was a theoretical physicist and one of the great scientific minds of his generation, but he was also very witty and a great storyteller. His autobiography is a really easy and interesting read.

    Madam Secretary - The autobiography of Madeleine Albright, who was the first female Secretary of State.

    Jack Welch and the G.E. Way - a great business book.

    Opening The Xbox - the story of how Microsoft decided to build their gaming console. At the time, there was a big internal debate about whether to focus their available resources on video games, or WEBTV (which was a device for accessing the Internet through your TV, back in the days of dial-up.)

    The Weather Channel - The story of how they conceived and implemented a national weather channel on TV. It's a dry topic, but it's full of stories about making complicated deals and negotiations to get information flowing from state to state, back before there was an Internet to speak of.
