Super Freakanomics by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner is an excellent book that breaks down the complexities of economics into layman's terms. I would recommend it to everyone in the world because I find a lot of decisions people make are completely irrational and economics helps people make the best decisions.
True Compass by Edward Kennedy is an amazing read so far. For those who don't know, Edward Kennedy is the youngest brother of John F. Kennedy. From reading his book so far, I have a greater appreciation for the Kennedy family. Believe it or not, the family is probably one of the most powerful families in world history. This book is a long read, but who cares? It's going by fast.
