The Know-It-All: One Man's Humble Quest to Become the Smartest Person in the World によって A.J. Jacobs
Just for the heck of it, one 日 A.J. Jacobs decided to read the entire Encyclopedia Britannica, all thirty-two volumes. Surprisingly his details about his adventure is quite amusing and he does share some very interesting tidbits from the EB. または as Jon Stewart says: "The Know-It-All is a hilarious book and quite impressive achievement. I've always said, why doesn't someone put out a less complete version of the encyclopedia? Well done, A.J."

Mmkay, this is a really powerful-but really long- quote and I really hope あなた take just a few 分 out of whatever you're doing and read it.

"I was telling あなた about evil, now that I know what it is. It's what makes a man get drunk and press a red hot poker on his child's back. It's what makes men have to queue for hours at the dock gates for a chance of a job when there are only a dozen jobs for a hundred men, so they fight each other in order to get them, and the foreman laugh and egg them on. It's what takes an old couple who've got nothing left but each other and splits them up to go...

In A Sunburned Country, A Walk in the Woods and I'm a Stranger Here Myself: Notes on Returning to America After 20 Years Away によって link
While I have only discovered Bill Bryson's works within the past year, I have whole-heartedly fallen in 愛 with his writings. Why? Because they are the freaking funniest things I have ever read. He delights in depicting the strange and the awkward, which usually turns out to be him. This "God Dad! [teenage eyes rolling in disdain, can't believing that they are related]" theme runs throughout his books, adding *pop* and *crackle* to his extremely informative...

My Life in France によって Julia Child with Alex Prud'homme
You must know Julia Child によって name if not によって reputation. The cook of all cooks. The woman who revolutionized American household kitchens; she entered the ホーム によって TV and left us groaning, having just gorged on prodigious French food. But that really isn't her, Julia Child declares, in her book. My Life in France is an amazing, humanizing potrait of Julia Child as we peek into her life before fame and (can あなた belive it?) her life before she could cook (she claims that she was horrible in the キッチン before moving to France and attended cooking...
