I tend to be fond of non-fiction books that recount a good investigative journalism story. A couple that are sitting around my room right now are:

Betrayal - The Boston Globe
Crazy town - Robyn Doolittle
All the presidents men - Woodward & Bernstein

I'd also recommend the work of John Krakauer. I've enjoyed most of the things he's come out with over the years. 'Into thin air' and 'into the wild,' in particular.

Last but not least, Isaac Deutscher's 'Prophet' trilogy is probably the best biography I've ever got my hands on. Deutscher had a talent for unfolding historical events in an extremely readable way and his subject led a life reminiscent of a Greek tragedy.
