Books like Ken Burns

I'm a big fan of Ken Burns' documentaries (just finished up watching Baseball for the third time, for instance, and have seen The Civil War twice)... What I'm curious about is what books
would you recommend that present history in a siimilar fashion (easily digestible, compellingly written, etc.)?

Oh, and the topic could be anything (architecture, sports, war, politics, dog fighting...), as long as it's written in a way that makes the topic interesting.
