My top 10 non-fiction books

So I am finally getting around to sharing my list of top non-fiction books that have most influenced me.

The map unrolled slowly outward across the round, oaken table. My captains and lieutenants circled about, wide shoulders hunched over in grief, armor beaten and dented in, crimson blood smeared across their stalwart faces and muscled arms.
