    I wonder if this would fit the category. There's a few books (interview transcripts) from the TV interview show Enough Rope, hosted by Andrew Denton, an Australian comedian/TV host.

    The difference about this show from similar shows is that not only did Denton interview famous people, he also interviewed everyday people like taxi drivers and vets. He's also a very talented interviewer, intelligent and funny.

    I usually pick a summer reading project every year, i worked in health care, in one form or another, and summer is always slow.  This year i am rereading the classics, just finished Paradise Lost, The scarlett Letter and starting Sun Tzu's The Art Of War and Dante's Inferno.  One summer i read the entire Stephen King collection (the ones i had not already read anyway).  Optimus magister, bonus liber (The best teacher is a good book) Happy reading smile

    There is always the sequel to Freakonomics...did you read the "new" expanded version with the added blog pages?  I just read it because my son's girl friend who is a high school math teacher extraordinaire recommended it and I LOVED it.  I'm looking forward to the sequel.

    I'm not sure you would like my other reading recommendations which tilt toward the mystery/knitting/Pilcher variety.

    I know these aren't journalism books, but if you haven't read any of Malcolm Gladwell's books, I would recommend those. I loved "The tipping point" and "Blink".

    For something funny, try some of David Sedaris' books.
