High on the nonfiction list.
The way the stock exchange and coffee houses were interconnected.
A fascinating look at various points in history, as defined by the beverages of the time. I'd heard many of the stories behind beer, wine and distilled spirits before, but the coffee, tea and cola stories were mostly new to me, and therefore more interesting.
I haven't read the print version, but the author's narration of the audio version I believe must have added a lot to the text. It doesn't sound so much as if he's reading, but telling a story.
Other biographies and autobiographies read by the author.

Unusual, twisted, fascinating
Geek Love - also deals with a very unusual family in which the parents' motives are questionable.
Great voices for the characters - they really came to life.
Buster - he's an odd, lovable character.
