Thomas Frank: The Wrecking Crew
I loved this! Read it and learn. (It is a bit of a screed, but it's edifying nonetheless).
Christopher Hitchens: Hitch 22
I think I'm in love with Christopher Hitchens. He's flat-out brilliant.
Aaron Lansky: Outwitting History
Seems a strange topic, but an engaging story, and passionately told.
Steven Tyler: Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?
I love Aerosmith, but this book turned me off of Steven Tyler. Skip this one, and read "Life" by Keith Richards instead.
Erik Larsen: In the Garden of Beasts
Not bad, but not great and nowhere nearly as interesting as his previous book "The Devil in the White City". Run right out and buy a copy of "Devil" and devour it immediately, but give "Garden" a pass.
