Two absolute must reads are by the same author, journalist Mark Bowden.......
Black Hawk Down- Better than the movie, and that was an AWESOME movie.
Killing Pablo- The hunt for, and killing of Pablo Escobar. If he hadn't stuck his nose in politics he'd still be alive.
Into Thin Air... by Jon Krakauer- This one is about the 1996 Everest tragedy and offers a lot of insight into human behavior under extreme
The Theory and Practice of Hell.....by Eugen Kogon- A fantastic book, if you can find it. Written by an inmate of Buchenwald concentration camp and

The Dragons of Eden...by Carl Sagan- A brilliant investigation into the history of human intelligence, no other single book offers as much information
in under 250 pages.
The Heroin Diaries....by Nikki Sixx- The title pretty much sums it up, I could not put it down.
The Dirt: Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band....by Lee, Strauss, Mars, Neil and Sixx- The absolute best rock biography in print, a
lot of good road stories too which is right up your alley.
