Switching between his year on the International Space Station and the choices he had to make to get there, Endurance seems like an understatement considering all that Scott Kelly has achieved. It’s more than a book about space or about an astronaut’s experience; it’s about all that comes together to make such things happen. The perfect blend of biography and science, humor and inspirational reading. My copy is full of Post-its marking my favorite bits. - Rachel

American Wolf is a stellar example of nonfiction narrative, telling the story of one unique wolf as well as the history of wolves in the United States, their extirpation and recent reintroduction, their allies and those who cause them the greatest danger. - Melinda

Sacks always had a talent for making complex science accessible to the average reader, and in this work, one of two he was writing before his death, he focuses on the essence of the human experience. The essays in this collection vary by topic—from Darwin and evolution to Freud and physiology—and length and display Sacks’s mastery of the written word. - Aric

Smartly written, The Far Away Brothers chronicles the lives of two teenage El Salvadoran siblings as they become hermanos lejanos, or “faraway brothers.” Driven from their country, twins Ernesto and Raul brave the Rio Grande and Texas desert and make their way to their older brother in Oakland, only to face all the trials and tribulations of American teenagers, and with their debt to the coyotes constantly looming. - Aric

Women are frequently shunted to the side or ignored altogether in history, but they have often played a vital role in shaping our world. Alison Weir, with her signature meticulousness, puts the powerful women in the palace at the very center of history in this first of four planned volumes. I was more than happy to read about these important women and hope they will soon become household names, as they well deserve to be. - Ivy

When the author’s 80-year-old father decided to sit in on his college course on The Odyssey, he wasn’t prepared for how impactful the experience would be for the both of them. Poignant family memories, interwoven with a scholarly analysis of The Odyssey, make for a book that is part college lecture and part autobiography. The result is a truly lovely and unique father–son story. - Jade

Alice Waters opened the legendary Chez Panisse in 1971, and neither the cuisine of California nor that of the Western world has been the same since. Here in her first memoir, Waters puts together the pieces—female friendships and male lovers, childhood memories and adult journeys, music and art and France and the ’60s—that brought her to her legacy on Shattuck Avenue in Berkeley. Lovely and nostalgic with the hope of the last century, it will whet an appetite for beauty and change. - Jocelyn
