"THE COMMANDING HEIGHTS: THE BATTLE FOR THE WORLD ECONOMY" by Daniel Yergin and Joseph Stanislaw
Am told this book gives a good overview on how the world economy got to be what it is today.

"Desiring God: Meditations of a Christian Hedonist" by John Piper
Many people have mentioned this book to me. Finally, decided to pick it up and read the book with the provocative title. Sounds almost "sacriligious" doesn't it? Speaking of titles meant to raise an eyebrow, check out Disappointment with God. It is one of those books I couldn't put down.
