If you’ve seen my 2019 reading goals you’ll know that I hope to read much more non-fiction in the coming year. That goal is in existence thanks to compelling works like these, my picks for the best non-fiction books this year.

Best Nonfiction 2018

Deep:
Freediving, Renegade Science, and What the Ocean Tells Us About Ourselves
by James Nestor
Month Read: June 2018

The eye-opening experience of journalist James Nestor as he plunges into the world of free-diving and shares the field of ocean exploration in a style never quite done before. Dripping with science, surprise, and enlivening tales from the depths that awake the marine mammal in each of us.

The Bedside Book of Beasts
by Graeme Gibson
Month Read: April 2018

A wildlife miscellany full of tales, poems, diary entries and much more with themes that stir the native soul of hunter and prey, man and beast. A beautifully made and perfectly composed work from the desk of Graeme Gibson that’s perfect, as the title entails, for bedside reading.

A Life in Parts
by Bryan Cranston
Month Read: February 2018

You may know him best for his more serious work on Breaking Bad or as a hilarious father in the suburban comedy Malcom in the Middle. Either way, it’s no secret that Bryan Cranston is a creative genius with a comedic edge, a fact that shines through in his humorous and well-crafted memoir.

The 5AM Miracle 
by Jeff Sanders
Month Read: June 2018

One of the most motivating and practical books for productivity I have read, The 5AM Miracle is a perfect read for anyone looking to revitalize or restructure. A self-development you could read once, twice, or a hundred times and find something new each time.

How Successful People Lead
by John C. Maxwell
Month Read: November 2018

John C. Maxwell, a leadership development master in his own right, easily tackles the topic of influence with his usual wisdom and grace in an earnest, practical format with helpful advice for any leader in any circumstance.
