what's the most interesting popular non-fiction book you've read lately?

I feel like I should be able to answer this with something not in the realm of polytheistic religion (because anything in that realm seems wildly inappropriate here somehow XD ) but I am drawing a total blank.

*ponders bookshelves*

...the ratio of "books I own that I can honestly recommend because I have read them" to "books I would like to recommend but can't because I merely own them" is appallingly low :(

Debt: The First 5000 Years, David Graeber
The Invisible Heart: Economics and Family Values, Nancy Folbre
This Bridge Called My Back 4th ed., ed. Moraga & Anzaldua

APPALLINGLY LOW I TELL YOU though also if we are thinking 'general politics' instead of 'feminist politics' then his interests and mine don't overlap that much to begin with (my most 'world affairs' book is Half the Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity for Women Worldwide, Kristoff and WuDunn, but I am not recommending that to anyone without a reread aimed at noting the trigger warnings), and most of the overlap derives from how much economics drives politics!

Of these three, I think he'll have the best luck with Folbre.

Soundbite

Miscellaneous. Eclectic. Random. Perhaps markedly literate, or at least suffering from the compulsion to read any text that presents itself, including cereal boxes.
