schema:description"Here is your road map to the vast and previously uncharted terrain of recreational nonfiction. After defining the genre and discussing it's unique characteristics and appeals; the author describes more than 500 popular nonfiction titles and organizes them according to genre. Everything from true adventure, true crime, and travel narratives to investigative nonfiction, environmental writing, and life stories. Genres are subdivided into subgenres and popular themes, such as micro-histories, deep science, and humorous memoirs. Focus is on the best titles published within the last decade, with key classics and benchmark titles also cited. For each title you'll find a short list of nonfiction read-alikes; and fiction read-alikes are listed for each genre."@en
