51 Down, 1 To Go (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

Underground!: The Disinformation Guide to Ancient Civilizations, Astonishing Archaeology and Hidden History is an eye-opening collection of essays that question the established wisdom of the history of the world and its civilizations. For me, the book was reminiscent of a broader Chariots of the Gods (not surprising, since that book's author, Erich Von Daniken, contributes an essay). The essays are often backed with scientific data and arguments, and though I don't agree with all the hypotheses presented, the book did make me think and stimulated several conversations.

My next (and last of the year) 52 Books, 52 Weeks book is Chris Ware's ACME Novelty Library.
