Best of Everythingnonfiction for 2008

Here is my list of the best nonfiction books, films, and documentaries for 2008. To make my list, each book or film had to receive at least a four star rating. The release date has no bearing on my choices. This list simply represents the best of what I personally saw or read this past year.

Since 2008 isn't over yet and there are some books and films that I plan to finish and see before the end of the year, I will revise this list in January.
