Lies My Teacher Told Me
James W. Loewen
Explores the lies, half truths and misinterpretations we learn in our school textbooks. Whether you buy into it all or not, its a fun, interesting read.
Monster: The Autobiogrophy of an LA Gangmember
Interesting to read from this mans perspective, even if its quite Jaded

Also, if anyone liked the Band of Brothers book, I just finished Dick Winters' memoirs called "Beyond Band of Brothers" and it was great.

Robert B. Parker's Spenser novels are fun reads if you are int o fiction.
When you are in the mood again for WW2 and are looking for fiction there is W.E.B. Griffin serios called "The Corps".. he aslo has a series called "Badge of Honor" about the Philadelphia police department (also fiction) and another series about the US Army (Again fiction).
I've just started reading stuff by Lee Child..pretty good story called Tripwire, which is part of a series of books.
THen there is always Douglas Adams

If you're into war books, George Orwell's (author of 1984) non-fiction ''Homage to Catalonia'' is a must. It's about his experiences fighting in the Spanish civil in Catalonia from December 1936 to June 1937.

A book I love is
The Sharks of Lake Nicaragua, Randy Wayne White
Link to the book on Amazon
He Talks about all kinds of travel, fishing, adveture and plays paintball for the first time and although its a dated...I got a kick out of hearing him talk about using his P68. My mother found the book for me, I have read it twice now, I will probably read it again...Its humorous and educational at the same time.
Art of war by Sun Tzu is always good, Good for bussiness, paintball, Life in general.

Anything by Hemingway, as for non fiction I read a great biography on Ghandi but can't remember the title for the life of me. Really just go to the library and start grabbing books of the shelf you'll fing gold in no time.
When I go to the boat I get a book I should have read in high school and some brain candy. I'm very fond of James Michner ( I've never met someone who kills of more main characters than him).

1984 by George Orwell
Any of the science-fiction books by Isaac Asimov, especially The Robots of Dawn, or any of the Foundation series.
