Top Books I Read in 2012

Here are the top 10 books I read this past year for the first time which I rated the highest on facebook’s “Booktracker” and “Goodreads” (order is reverse-order from which I read them):

1. Is God a Mathematician?

2. The Unexpected Legacy of Divorce

3. Boomerang: Travels in the New Third World

4. Why People Get Fat: And What To Do About It

5. Moneyball

6. The Mind at Night: The New Science of How and Why We Dream

7. The Golden Ratio: The Story of PHI, the World's Most Astonishing Number

8. Columbine

9. I Became a Christian and All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt: Replacing Souvenir Religion with Authentic Spiritual Passion

10. Gomorrah: A Personal Journey into the Violent International Empire of Naples' Organized Crime System

My ratings, as well as reviews, are of course somewhat subjective (The above were rated at above four stars, which another dozen or so right at the four star level, and many more below).

What did you read this past year which tops out your own personal list?
