Here are a few titles that I've enjoyed and that touch upon so much more than just the main topic. Mark Kurlansky's titles will take you on a journey of discovery and a few culinary adventures.
Check out Cod: A Biography of the Fish that Changed the World or Salt: a Word History.
The Professor and the Madman: A Tale of Murder, Insanity, and the Making of the Oxford English Dictionary.
Stone by Stone takes on not just the history of stone walls but the geological history of the region (and the reason they built the walls).
A History of the World in Six Glasses. Bon appétit!
