This sounds like a weird suggestion but it's an incredibly entertaining and interesting book about an amazing entrepreneur who was one of America's first fruit tycoons. http://www.amazon.com/Fish-That-Ate-Whale-Americas/dp/037429...

I actually value the "weird suggestions" most: the "latest thing" books are pretty visible. Whether bubbled up through Amazon's creaky recommendation engine or twitter or whatever, Nate Silvers' book was going to show up on my radar, whereas something like this might not have. Thanks!
