The New Kings of Nonfiction edited by Ira Glass (2007)

I had not read any of the articles in this collection before. I may reread some of them, and would recommend the book as a whole.

In particular, I would recommend these:
Jonathan Lebed’s Extracurricular Activities by Michael Lewis (2001)
Losing the War by Lee Sandlin (1997)
Power Steer by Michael Pollan (2002)
