"Outliers: The Story of Success" by Malcolm Gladwell
"Gladwell might be the perfect nonfiction read for the commuter. His chapters are short, his ideas generally compelling, and you'll draw at least one or two subjects for water cooler discussion with each few pages read."

"Statistics meets pop culture in this book. You may find yourself looking forward to your commute just a little more."
