I recently started reading Outliers and I'm interested in that style of non fiction. My next read is going to be The Hidden Reality by Brian Greene. Do you guys have any recommendations for non fiction books that are interesting. Right now I'm interested in space and alternate universe theories which is why I'm starting the book by Brian Greene. Any topic is fine, I just don't know much about this genre and want to get into it more.

Cosmic Consciousness by Richard Maurice Bucke is a very compelling book on the origins and evolution of consciousness

It's not non-fiction, but Slaughterhouse Five by kurt vonnegut is a great take on our misconception of time and space

Slaughtherhouse Five is one of my favorite Novels of all time.

it a way it's kind of a hybrid between fiction and non-fiction since a vast majority of it is based upon Vonnegut's personal experiences in Dresden. I wrote a fantastical senior thesis comparing this to Don Delillo's White Noise.

'The Unthinkable' by Amanda Ripley.

its about disasters (e.g. hurricanes, sept. 11, airplane crashes, building fires) and the psychology of how people caught up in them react, who survives and why. fascinating read with some quite important info on what to do if you find yourself in that situation.
