Top 10 Non-Fiction Best Books of 2011

I've read a number of very good books this year. I have put together a list of books that are suitable for different tastes and interests for mostly men but for the well read woman too. I have not listed the books in terms of preference or ranking.

The trials and adventures of an American diplomat and his family in pre-war Nazi Germany.

Inside look at what's wrong with college sports and the NCAA.

Inside look at how to play high school football with Midwestern values and spirit.

The title describes the story within the book.

Excellently researched and written book about the events and people contributing to the economic meltdown.

What goes up must come down. Careers and fortunes spiral out of control. Great anecdotes about John Travolta, John McCain, Peter Max and other celebrities.

Sound analysis and ideas about our economic and political crises---not the junk you hear out of Washington or at the political debates.

A sobering reality check for baby boomers and older.

Fans of Conan O'Brien will like their man and how he handled his departure at NBC. Lots of dirt.

Destiny of the Republic: A Tale of Madness, Medicine and the Murder of a President by Candice Millard.
Fascinating history and interesting details around the assassination of President James Garfield. Garfield had the potential to be one of our greatest Presidents.
