The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson. This book masterfully combines the true stories of a serial killer and the 1893 Chicago World's Fair. All spoken words are verified from written sources, but it reads like a fast-paced novel. Larson paints an incredible picture of the time period. Needs to be made into a movie!
Carnegie's book has entered the public consciousness as an accurate viewpoint on how to use knowledge of human nature to get what you want in life. Published by Vermillion, a subsidiary of Random House.
