    Age of Spiritual Machines by Ray Kurzweil
    About AI and the future.

    Blink by Malcolm Gladwell
    The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell
    Both very interesting psychological books.

    Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser
    Fascinating study of the American fast food industry.

    Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot and Other Observations by Al Franken
    Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them by Al Franken

    Both political books that anyone on the political spectrum can enjoy.

    Read "Thinking, fast and slow"
    Without a shadow of a doubt, one of my all time favorites.
    Trying to go over what this book digs into would take me a whole post in itself, so allow me to just gush: This book is damn awesome, read it!
    Seriously though, for behavioral research, there are few books that touch the scope and breadth that Dan Kahneman dives into with this masterpiece
    Mr. Kahneman holds a Nobel Prize in economics as well, and this aspect shines through in the book’s many examples.
