EconoMyths is surprisingly good. The author is right: Continuous economy growth is unsustainable.
You might want to read "Alchemy of Air" by Thomas Hager

Reading Alchemy of Air now!
I couldn't put down the book when I started reading it.

If you like this one, there's another book that somewhat related to the Haber-Bosch's product down-chain called "Omnivore's Dillema" written by Michael Pollan.

I read almost purely non-fiction so here's a list of books I read quite recently;

1. Supersense - Bruce M.Hood
2. Dance with Chance - Sypros Makridakis
3. The Last Lecture - Randy Pausch (Brilliant book!)

I'm currently dabbling into philosophy and psychology, any recommendations?

I just read the myths of innovation by a ex-Microsoft employee. It's super boring! Everyone knows every invention is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. Since the author is so logical(left brain), I wonder he has the creativity(right brain) to innovate!
There's another book that might interest you related to I.T. industry: "In Search of Stupidity: Over Twenty Years of High Tech Marketing Disasters, Second Edition" but only if you are old enough to know about Wordpro, Borland, Ashton Tate, etc. Unfortunately, this book was written before MS-Vista hit the market, otherwise, Microsoft would be one of the biggest butts of the jokes as well.
