    Requesting interesting nonfiction

    I'm ordering a few books soon, but I haven't quite decided on which ones yet. Do you have any suggestions for interesting nonfiction? I wouldn't mind reading about some subject I'm currently unfamiliar with, so please recommend anything you find interesting that does not require too much prior knowledge of the subject. And please tell me why you find it interesting.

    If you're into memoirs and essays, try "Best American Essays of the Century" by Joyce Carol Oates. I found it to be a really good read, and it's broken up into parts so you can skip around if you'd like. I simply love memoirs, especially those about childhood, and this book has plenty of them. Some of the essays included are written by authors such as Martin Luther King Jr, Mark Twain, William James, and W.E.B. du Bois.

    I'm big into the science non-fiction. Very rarely do they have interesting stories or plots, if they even have characters at all. That's why I always recommend Hitler's Uranium Club:

    Amazon.com: Hitler's Uranium Club: The Secret Recordings at Farm Hall (9780387950891): Jeremy Bernstein, David Cassidy: Books

    Fascinating story. Great editing. And you get a peek into the lives of some of the most brilliant people who ever lived. You can read books by them, but you don't usually get to hear them in such an intimate context. The book also brings great insight into the goings on at the end of WWII, the German bomb efforts, and the state of thought near the end of the Golden Age of physics.

    My favorite author is Jay M Horne, he wrote Life's A JOKE!, Life's A TRIP!, and I took the red pill
    anybody ever read his books? They are similiar to CWG but much more intense. He is on amazon. Any suggestions on good reads, I flew through his 3 books in less than a week. Stephen kings gunslinger series was awesome too.
