The last book I read was "Wolves, Jackals, and Foxes" by Kris Hollington. Since I don't know too much about world history, I found the book interesting. Personally, I enjoyed reading about the many failed attempts to assassinate Fidel Castro and the life of Uday Saddam Hussein. However, I have a feeling that someone who is really into history would find this book a little too "entry-level". Anyway, I guess it's a good introduction to many fascinating topics.
