Okay. You asked for it. I have fairly wide ranging non-fiction interests.

These are all my favorites of the last year or so (besides James Rollins' Sigma Force series, which includes amazing fiction about pandemics, cyberwar and AI; I must have learned at least six big things from each of these novels).

Captured by Sheldon Whitehouse
Moneyland by Olover Bullough
The Outlaw Ocean by Ian Urbina

El Norte by Carrie Gibson
An Indigenous People's History of the United States by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz
21 Lessons for the 21st Century by Yuval Noah Harari

Who Owns the Future? by Jaron Lanier
Prisoners of Geography by Tim Marshall
The Biggest Bluff by Maria Konikova

The Modern Detective by Tyler Maroney

Just to name a few. Oh, and anything by Timothy Snyder is an education about Russia.
