What NON-FICTION book would you like to read and discuss in August, September and October of 2015?

This is our official non-fiction selection poll so please read these simple rules and then cast your votes.

1. Please do not vote if you do not fully intend to participate in the book discussion.

2. Do not vote if you have less than 25 posts on the forums. If you have less than 25 posts you have until the conclusion of the poll to make 25 posts. Posts in the "Introduce Yourself" forum do not count towards post count. We're looking for real posts not posts that appear to be designed to increase post count.

3. We have 4 book choices. Vote for up to 3 of the books that you would read and discuss with us. In other words vote for just one book if only one book looks appealing. Hopefully two or three look interesting. Please take a few minutes and read about all 4 books and then cast your votes.

Here are our 4 book choices...

I'll give 2 or 3 a shot, I'll think about checking out 4 if it's chosen. Not sure it's going to tell me anything I don't already know.

We're out of time and I don't see new votes being made. So we'll go with the winner: Post American World. :-)
