Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void

All over the map (in the best sense), this year's nonfiction bests include tantalizing titles from science, biography, business, history, and beyond. We discovered space travelers who have miraculously adapted to an "off-Earth environment" in their junkets to places like Mars. We met the Wall Street whizzes who bet against the economy (and made in a mint in the process). And, from across the pond, we met Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the theologian who stood up to Hitler. We also got the dish on the top chefs with Anthony Bourdain, and relived one of the greatest migrations in history. All in all, it was a trip not to be missed!
