I'd prefer fiction books here if you don't mind. It will keep the list manageable. We just finished the book "One Second After." It's about EMP attacks on the US and most of the developed world. Decent reading and a little scary when you understand it's one of those things that could become a reality. Has its faults but has a pile of good stuff too. Our copy is out on loan now and probably will be for the next several months. We're hoping to open the eyes of those we care about to how quickly (and severely) things can go bad. I highly recommend it.
