 On the Road by Jack Kerouac: 
"This is the first book I ever loved. I have probably read this thing about 30 times. For me at least, it was about self discovery and the journey of a group of friends. I have never read a book where the actions of the people resulted in the most realistic outcomes without making the story worse." 

Visions of Cody by Jack Kerouac 
"If I am telling you to read On The Road, well, you have to read Visions of Cody. You can experience them separate  but if you want to really appreciate Kerouac's work I think it is best you take both in (I am also clearly a fan of the "Beat" generation)."

Kareem by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar with Mignon McCarthy: 
"This is a bio of one of the best centers in NBA history. This might not be a "must read" for folks outside of the sports realm, but it has great insight from the everyday going-ons from a player's perspective. He first couple of chapters, primarily when discussing Magic Johnson's enthusiasm is as funny as it gets. Really, I would recommend this for anyone who has to deal with an every day grind situation."
