what are some of your favorite nonfiction books?

I looked in the sticky and nothing caught my fancy.

I'm interested in more contemporary nonfiction.

Right now I spend a lot of time reading older non-fiction.

Yet I did start out reading fiction mainly.

Currently I'm reading Charles Mackay's Extraordinary Popular Delusions. If you had any interest in sociology or economics, it is a great read which summarizes many European-wide delusions concerning early cases of commercial crises and even an explanation of the obsession with the Philosopher's stone from the 800s until a millennia later.

Another book I'm reading that is technically non-fiction is Euclid's Elements which is basically the essentials of Geometry and mathematical thought.

I don't know man, what are you interested in? The non-fiction I read is economics, mathematics, and history.

I know it's not exactly what you're thinking of, but Truman Capote's In Cold Blood is a "non-fiction novel".

I gathered that it's essentially a novelization of a bunch of transcripts from Capote's interviews with the people of Holcomb.

It's a chilling read, and you can look up pictures and literature about the Clutter family online after you're done reading, like some kind of future voyeur (if you're into that kind of thing).
