Follow this Thread
by Henry Eliot

This book discusses the history of mazes and labyrinths - from their origin and the myths that include them (particularly that of Minos and Daedalus) to classic movies that employ them in the plot (The Shining). There is a red thread that goes through the book from the first page all the way to the last and the reader has to twist and turn the book while reading to follow the story. Very interesting and creatively presented!

How Not To Die

Great book on nutrition
