Non Fiction Books for Teens – The Hottest Choices for 2013

March 25, 2013

With winter coming to an end we find ourselves wanting to transition from our novels and into non fiction books. That’s why we are going to go over the list of the best non fiction books for teens. Based on the comments of our users and editor’s choices, our list contains some of the newer non fiction books, along with the ‘oldies but oldies’ type books that every reader appreciates.

In light of one of the World’s greatest recessions, Neil Barofsky gives a masterful description of the events that took place in “Bailout.” Although not an interesting topic for all our readers, we believe it is important to understand the true reason for the crisis and be able to create our own rhetoric towards it. In this book the author takes an unbiased approach on the mishandlings of Washington and Wall Street and everyone that falls in between. Contrary to media propaganda about Wall Street taking the full blame, Barofsky reveals the mishandlings of the credit agencies owned by the U.S. government who failed to act on behalf of the taxpayer. After reading this book you will have a much greater grasp on the background of the financial meltdown and discern the implications various constituents had in its causation.

Perhaps one of the most iconic people in the past decade, the book “Steve Jobs: The Man Who Thought Different” gives an account of an ingenious man’s life. The book was received with much enthusiasm among readers as being inspiring and conceptualization of Steve jobs ‘reality distortion field’ as the unique driving edge in his success. This perspective allowed him to transcend the world, as we know it, similar to Henry Ford’s invention for cheap cars that the average American could afford. Karen Blumenthal gives an incredible and diverse background into the portrait of a complex American entrepreneur who brought the greatest innovation to technology in the first decade of the 21st Century and left a great legacy for others to build from.

This years New York Times best seller “The Demon in The Freezer” by Richard Preston details the horrifying anthrax attacks in the U.S. Preston describes the way that scientists communicated with ‘hot agents’ to protect civilians against biological attacks. Following the lockup of the deadly smallpox virus was contained in two high security freezers in Atlanta and Serbia, but now has been set loose. The Central Intelligence Agency now believes that hostile states are in possession of these viruses and maybe using genetic engineering to find new diseases.

A Pullitzer prize-winning author, Anne Applebaum, visits Europe during the decades of the Soviet Union in the “Iron Curtain.” Applebaum skillfully accounts the ideals of grandeur behind the Soviet Union’s creation at the conclusion of World War II. The author details the fear and manipulation propaganda that communists used to dethrone governments in iron curtain countries and the rigging of ‘elections.’ For anyone interested in a thorough portrayal of the background events leading to the Soviet Unions creation this book is a must read.

We hope we have provided a broad range of books in different subjects to interest all readers. For more in depth and reliable reviews like this, bookmark and visit us again in the future!
