This week's question is:
I have to admit that I'm more often affected on this level by nonfiction books than I am fiction books. Some of the first books that came to mind for this question were books like Lies My Teacher Told Me, Dead Man Walking, Outliers, and How to Make Love Like a Porn Star. These were books that challenged me, outraged me, taught me. They put me in awe, put me in my place, put me in another's shoes. Compelling nonfiction grabs me because it's true. It is about real people, real lives, real truths that shed light on the human condition. That kind of knowledge impacts me far greater than fiction.
I highly recommend all four of those books, by the way. They are all 5+ stars for me.
