Yes, we know you’ve seen the movie! While Baz Luhrmann’s on-screen depiction is exceptional at its place, the book is a real page-turner. It comprises many lessons about being free and the ill-effects of chasing material benefits.

Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer

Based on the real-life account of a man who leaves his wealthy family behind to go on a soul-searching expedition, the book gives us a narrative about being out in the wild. Christopher McCandless’ learnings during the journey and how he weathers challenges form the rest of this inspirational American classic.

1984 by George Orwell

It is arguably the best dystopian novel and can be deemed relevant in every era. Serving a warning about the threats posed by ruthless and high-handed rulers, this unsettling book doesn’t mince any words in laying out the world’s harsh realities.

In a study conducted by the American Library Association, it was found that men read longer books than women. They mostly stuck to non-fiction titles, which included history, memoirs, and the likes. Either way, they should ideally surround themselves with thought-provoking books that will help them understand the society in a better manner.
