Any Good Non-Fiction Reads?

Post by Netgirl » 28 Oct 2016, 21:55

I've been on a non-fiction kick recently. I went through Tom's River and right now I'm reading through Dan Kirby's books. I read his 'Death at Seaworld' and currently reading another one called 'Animal Factory'. I know both these books are slightly controversial topics, but I loved how fact heavy they were and engaging. Anyone have/know any other good non-fiction books I could dip into that are engaging, well written, and well researched?

True Esacape Stories by Paul Dowsell. I have posted its review in this site so you could go through it. :)
When people say you've changed, it just means that you have stopped living your life, their way.

Have you read Not Without My Daughter by Betty Mahmoody? It is autobiographical and really good.

I've read this book and would also recommend it - it is very impactful. And, if you like true-life survival stories, "Touching the Void" by Joe Simpson is also very powerful.

I recommend McDowell by William H. Coles for you. Generally, the books that I read that were in the genre of non-fiction reflect the good works of the author already mentioned.
Yes, I have a dream! A dream that I will never give up.

Thank you for the recommendation. I am not very keen at non-fiction books, but I'll definitely check the book.

The Cult Next Door: A Manhattan Memoir - Kindle edition by Elizabeth R. Burchard

It was so thought-provoking, and it has been reviewed on this site.
