    Just finished "Why We Hate the Oil Companies: Straight Talk from an Energy Insider". It's a bit dated, but I know the author.

    Just started "The Shield of Achilles - War, Peace and the Course of History" by Phillip Bobbit (a nephew of LBJ)

    Falcon of Sparta by Conn Iggulden

    Novelization of what, in my opinion, is one of the more fascinating events in history and a story of one of history's greatest generals (Xenophon). Greek mercenaries (known as the Ten Thousand) take part in a Persian civil war. Despite dominating their area of the Battle of Cunaxa, their patron (Cyrus the Younger) is killed in battle. At the ensuing truce talks, the Greek generals are betrayed and murdered by the victorious Persian prince (Artaxerxes II). Xenophon (student of Socrates, historian, and pro-Spartan Athenian), at age 30, is elected the new general of the surviving Greeks and is charged with marching the Greeks back across Persia in a fighting retreat against hundreds of thousands of Persians. Sweet nectar for a history junkie!

    If you are interested in the oil industry, check out The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money, and Power by Daniel Yergin. It was published in the early 1990s, and looks at history through an energy sector lens from 1850 to that point. It was turned into a PBS documentary shortly thereafter. Fascinating stuff.
