Yes, Half the Sky is an excellent non ficition book. It is written by a married couple who won the Pulitzer Prize in journalism for their reporting about China in the New York Times. Their informative book is about the oppression of women around the world. Although they use statistics in the text, they even more effectively write about experiences of individual women. They look at the problems and solutions from many viewpoints and sometimes make educated deductions. I highly recommend this book. It will enlighten the average person as the US media is lax in reporting all that is occurring and the US government is lax in taking effective steps in ameliorating the problems.
Back to a former topic: I still recommend A Patch of Blue. When my family visited Australia, we were impressed with how many used book stores there are. Perhaps, you could find this book in one. :-) Also, I think your wife would like this book as well.
untamed is a great book it really sucks you into the story but to trully understand it you have to read the beginning of the series the series consists of marked, betrayed, chosen, untamed, hunted, and tempted. its a really great read i highly recomend it!
