Thomas Friedman's From Beirut to Jerusalem is one of my favourite books of all time. Not only does he do an incredible job of elucidating the complexities of the Middle East in a relatively unbiased way, he is a VERY funny guy [classic jewish humour shines through]. He talks like your average joe and like all the greats, thats where the magic lies. I couldn't put it down. and that's a feat for any non fiction.

George Packer's The Assassins' Gate: America in Iraq is a very thorough and extremely well researched book on the inner workings of Washington opinion makers and neo-con think tanks. It's an incredible read that pretty much answers the question of why we went to iraq. Do not think for a second you wont learn a ton more than just the title. This is a cant miss for anyone interested in Politics.
