Well, there's no way I make it to 50 but here's what I have so far:

1. Slam - Nick Hornby
2. War Reporting for Cowards - Chris Ayers
3. Alternadad - Neal Pollack
4. Paperboy: Confessions of a Future Engineer - Henry Petroski
5. World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War - Max Brooks
6. The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable - Nassim Nicholas Taleb
7. Freakonomics: Dubner & Levitt
8. Our Daily Meds - Melody Peterson - Its a subject that deserved a better author. She did a decent job of exposing some things but on too many occasions went way over the top in her embellishments. For example, she called adding flavor to the outside of a Tylenol as "making a potentially deadly drug taste like candy". Still that said, I'm glad I read it. Thanks for the article and recommendation CR.

9. Stuff White People Like - Christian Lander - Funny, fluff book. It would have been even funnier if I didn't find myself saying "heyyyyy, he's making fun of me" so often. It was a good quick read. It would make an excellent bathroom reading book.

I LOVED Life as we knew it.  What did you think?  If you liked it, and you aren't tired of moon world, you should read the companion novel  The Dead and the Gone.  It's a little more gritty, but still enjoyable.

adding
16 Steven Watts - Mr Playboy - Hugh Hefner and the American Dream
I really expected this to be particularly kick-ass given that Watts was allowed access to the Playboy archives and built up almost 40 hours of interviews with Mr Hefner himself. Maybe the author just spent too much time ogling the girls at the mansion instead, because it falls short of the no-holds-barred account I was hoping for when it was announced at the start of the year. The early years of the Playboy phenomenon are well covered but he rushes through the 80's, 90's and the 00's like a man on speed, seemingly completely overlooking the whole 'internet thing' - and the effects that it has had on the traditional 'skin' industry. Mr Hefner (I reverently call him "Mr Hefner" always hoping for that invite to his home) has called the the most descriptive biography about him so far, but I can't help thinking a better one lurks in the memories of long-time employees and/or his brother Keith.

17 Tony Benn - Dare to be a Daniel - Then and Now
I read this book in bursts over a lengthy period and probably enjoyed it more as a result. It's very much a curate's egg, covering as it does Benn's childhood as well as compiling his essays and speeches from more recent times. But even from this you get the feeling that Tony Benn is one of the finest - and most honest - British politicians ever, albeit one that was too radical and too overtly socialist to run for the top job as PM. Shame.
