Help me read the world through different eyes

Back in January, as a New Years resolution, I set myself the goal of reading a book a month in 2010. Each book would help me expand my world view or be the seminal book about an interesting topic. They would be non-fiction. I'm looking for recommendations.
Books I have read so far
posted by Solomon to education (31 answers total) 66 users marked this as a favorite
1] The Gift Of Fear
2] Feeing Good
3] The Introvert Advantage
I picked these up because I've seen them recommended on the Green so often.
Books I plan to read
1] The Greatest Show on Earth
2] The Female Eunuch
Subjects I'd like to read about
2] Career choices.
I'm basically looking to be challenged, in the sense of reading about a POV that either I disagree with or haven't considered before. I'm pretty open as to subject, but I think I'm interested in less mainstream ideas, such as feminism or racial equality. I think I have a vague human-oriented bent to this.

^ It's the only book about feminism I've ever heard of (and I know very little about feminism), please feel free to suggest others.
