Im into non fiction right now. Any book recommendations would be amazing! The one I'm currently reading is : save me from myself by Brian "head" Welch (from the heavy metal band Korn) thanks in advance!

Best non-fiction book I've read so far this year is If Then.

A Degree of Mastery
The Boys in the Boat

And assuming you don't mind a collection of essays, I would recommend What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions.

I found Factfulness very interesting.

A great book is Never Caught by Erica Armstrong Dunbar. I've given it to several people!

Anything by Candice Millard, David Grann, or Erik Larson. I’m in the middle of Ghosts of Gold Mountain, Gordon Chang’s book on Chinese workers who built the Transcontinental Railroad.

Simon Garfield writes general books about special subjects. I loved Mauve about chemical dyes being developed in the mid19th century, and the environmental, financial, fashionable, international etc ramifications of that. Also, On The Map is a dipintoable read about exploration atlases and colonialism which made me snort with laughter in places.

Mary Roach is a science journalist - her most famous book is Stiff, about human corpses, but she did a book Packing for Mars about space travel and how to make a totally self contained eco system on a long range space vessel. Fair warning, a lot of the book was about poo.

Some of my favourite non-fic books of all time: Why We Sleep, Invisible Women by Caroline Criado Perez (which won't link for some reason), The Time Traveller's Guide to Medieval England and Seabiscuit: An American Legend
