The Places in Between is about Rory Stewart(Author) who travels across Afghanistan only walking on foot. It is a great narrative because Rory shares his experiences in the different villages he visited and the different people he met. It was interesting to read about how people live in small villages and how the war has affected the lives in Afghanistan.
David and Goliath, by Malcolm Gladwell was a very interesting book I read and it opened my eyes to see many situations in a different view point. Gladwell questions a lot of beliefs that we generally hold and takes examples from the real world to counter those beliefs.
For example, he discusses how a disability is not always a disadvantage and gives some CEO's with disabilities to show that.
The book overall is a great way to widen your view on many things. Many people disagree with Gladwell's examples, but regardless of whether you disagree or not, I think the book deserves a read.
A great book I have read about Islam is called the Philosophy of Islam. If you don't understand Islam or want to know what the religion is about I would recommend this book. You can access the book for free on www.al-islam.org. In this day and age, many people have harsh views of Islam because of extremists who kill innocent people off all religions including Islam, but this book can help you to understand what Islam is really about.
