Dharma Punx: A Memoir
1.  Dharma Punx: A Memoir by Noah Levine
The list author says:
  "The nice thing about a great book is that it can be captivating even if you aren't necessarily familiar with the topic. This book has Punk Rock and Buddhist undertones, but it's a story of pushing ahead of challenge and misery and finding the light."

The Wolf of Wall Street
2.  The Wolf of Wall Street by Jordan Belfort
The list author says:
  "A mind blowing account of a man who blasted off in the stock market boom, put every drug under the sun in his system at one point or another, reveled in the excitement of being able to buy anything in the world, and in the end; barely made it out alive. The insiders world and often unspoken about topics in the book make it a captivating read for anyone."

King of the Club: Richard Grasso and the Survival of the New York Stock Exchange
3.  King of the Club: Richard Grasso and the Survival of the New York Stock Exchange by Charles Gasparino
The list author says:
  "It's impossible to read this book and not get angry at the people who led to the demise of Dick Grasso. How could you possibly blame a man for taking as much as he could get when he was doing such a great job at what they paid him for? NYSE will never see another man at the helm as talented or charismatic as Dick. This book was enlightening, and highly entertaining."

5.  Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10 by Marcus Luttrell
The list author says:
  "Imagine being a soldier in afghanistan out on a covert mission in the middle of what resembles a lunar landscape, and you're descended upon by hundreds of psychotic Taliban warriors and you must fight for your life. You might think this is another men's war book at first glance, but take a look closer. Any man or woman would appreciate how well this is written and what a great story it is."
