Educational, interesting books on a single topic

I'm looking for books (or lengthy articles/blog posts) that fully explain a certain topic in a way that is interesting, easily digestible, and not too dry.

This sounds pretty broad, but I just like learning about new things so I figure these suggestions will expose me to areas I never would've considered. For example, let's say there's a book on the history of batteries and how they work. Or an article on infomercials. Or the Korean War. Essentially, anything that covers a specific topic in detail that is enjoyable to read.
