What's Your Favorite Super-Juicy Non-Fiction Book?

Help me find a good vacation book and I will love you forever.

Well, I'm going on vacation next week. Another intimate romantic
getaway with Charlotte.

You may recall that I haven't read a book of fiction in maybe 20
years? But I love anything nonfiction, as long as it's juicy. My mom
teases me that my bookshelf (here it is in all its messy glory) has
more "as told to" books on it than anything else.

I could really use your help though. This week I've been on Amazon, in
two or three different bookstores, and have googled best nonfiction of
2013 about five times. But I'm coming up with nothing I'm dying to
read during this semi-rare instance when I actually will have time to
read a book or two.

On my last vacation, thanks to your brilliant suggestion, I devoured
that Lawrence Wright book, Going Clear, which I had previously
dismissed as too dry and with not enough celebrity dirt in it. Boy,
was I wrong! Thank you!

It doesn't have to be a recent book either. Any ideas for me? Please?
I will go buy them today and so appreciate you.

PS Just because this is beach reading DOES NOT mean that the subject matter has to be light. Murders, family dysfunction, drugs and all of that are more than welcome.
