Guarians of the Galaxy, even though most of the source material is different. Fun stories
Fight Club, the book was great. Author said the movie expanded on his ideas
The Walking Dead - the show has turned into a mockery of what it once was but they were great

Good ones Hayes. I read some of those as well, but the adoption want always good. Or in the case of GotG the movie was better than the comics

What is your favorite Non-Fiction book: The Music Lesson by Victor Wooten. It's a guide to view music from a different perspective.

I don't read very much and I read non-fiction even less. Probably have to say "Unbroken" by Laura Hillenbrand.

Good one! I'm using this for myself and nominating it as a bad example for yesterday's question.

I had a magic/cool tricks book in Sheldon that I was obsessed with as a kid.

I do have a autographed copy of Arnold Schwarzenegger's autobiography, but I've never read it.

The last non-fiction I read that comes to mind is "In Defense of Food" by Michael Pollan. Good read for fellow food nerds!

It's good, you should read it if you like him.

I have been reading a lot of military memoiresque type things, so i think i would say that genre in general is my favorite.

What constitutes as "mildly useful"?

Is teleportation too useful to qualify? How about the power of flight?

those are exceptionally useful. Now if you add limiters to those powers like you can only teleport 5 feet away or you can only fly at normal walking speed for 5 minutes a day. I guess controlling cats kind of needs a limiter such as I can only control cats I can physically see.

Essentially powers that wouldn't really change the way you live your life but would be neat party tricks.
