Good health related books

I usually read health magazines but I am looking for a couple good health related books to take with me on a long plane ride. Anyone have any suggestions?

I like A Woman's Book of Strength by Karen Andes. It's a treat for the body and the soul.

for conflicting but interesting perspectives, there's "you are what you eat" by gillian McKeith, "Dr. Mercola's Total Health Program: The Proven Plan to Prevent Disease and Premature Aging, Optimize Weight and Live Longer" by mercola, and eat right for your type" by peter d'adamo

I second "Fast Food Nation" and add "French Women Don't Get Fat"- it's very well-written and fun to read and I use it as the basis for my weight loss and health journey.
