Looking for some good non-fiction

I've got a brother with a birthday coming up, and he's interested in some good non fiction. Any suggestions? I was thinking of getting him a couple of books by John Krakauer, but my mother tells me he's currently reading Krakauer's Into Thin Air.

Well, for Christmas I got "A Pirate of Exquisite Mind", a bio of William Dampier who was, you guessed it, a pirate. Also circumnavigated the globe three times, presaged John Cook and influenced Darwin. I'm a couple of chapters in and the story is pretty interesting, but I do get a little annoyed with the authors, who, because there haven't been any biographies of this guy before, feel the need to amplify how important he was. Regardless: ARRRRG!
