100 Best Nonfiction Books of All Time

Over the course of 2017, Robert McCrum from The Guardian has been steadily positing a list of the 100 Best Nonfiction Books of All Time.

So, now the list is finally complete, feel free to indulge in the eclectic selection.

In the meantime, Robert explains how and why he chose some titles over others here @ The Guardian:
Sometimes, I wonder what such an exercise will look like in 2117. For now, this list will survive online, a snapshot of taste at the beginning of the 21st century. It will, no doubt, continue to provoke and infuriate. That’s partly its raison d’etre. More seriously, it will also continue to mine a treasury of prose that has been seasoned by adversity, guarded by devoted readers of all kinds, and cherished for expressing the shock of the new, in the greatest language the world has ever known.
