When I think of a non fictional book, I think of uni days. Most of the books I had to read put me to sleep... but one. I actually found this book interesting, even though I'm from a technical background. It was like the book was telling me a story.
The World is Flat by Thomas L. Friedman.
His perspective on the world, current affairs and how IT is part of it all is interesting. I still sometimes read his opinion pieces on the NY Times and follow him on twitter because he's inspiring.
To read his articles, his page is here: http://goo.gl/kXrf
In other news, I'm still working on my 101 list. I've only managed to come up with 12 items so far and I have less than 6 days to go!
