5 Non-Fiction Books That Will Eat Your Brain
Here are a few books I've just read (or am currently reading) that are more or less true accounts or sociologically based. For the most part, they are outrageously depressing.
Planet of Slums by Mike Davis (seriously, if you think you have it bad, read this shit)
Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein (she rules, there is clip of her on Democracy Now where she tears Allen Greenspan a new ass)
The World Without Us by Alan Weisman (perfect for all you post-apocalypse types)
Orientalism by Edward Said
Discipline and Punish by Michel Foucault
As they say, truth is stranger than fiction. Does anyone else have anything to recommend?
