hello to all, what would you suggest as a good non-fiction book.
all replies are welcomed.
its a read that is tough to put down I believe i would classify it as "based on a true story" if you saw the movie the book might not be as good
Non-fiction is a pretty broad classification. Perhaps you should express your interests or try to narrow down the possibilities.
Give these a try.
