I'm going to fall back on a couple of non-fiction books that are mind-blowing, although not necessarily on the same scale you're talking about.

On germs, plagues and bio-containment:

The Hot Zone by Richard Preston:

The Coming Plague by Laurie Garrett:

I read both of these books back to back and it's like reading the same story first covered by the National Enquirer (Hot Zone) and then again by the New York Times (Coming Plague). It's a fascinating look at disease distribution and protection. The Hot Zone is a light easy read that's more sensationalist than scientific, the Coming Plague is the polar opposite, but both are good reads.

Road Fever by Tim Cahill:

Guy is hired by GM for a promotional stunt. Drive their new truck from the tip of Argentina to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska as fast as he can. The problems he has getting through South and Central America are amazing, and not just culturally, politically.

Into the Heart of Borneo by Redmond O'Hanlon:

Take your average academic natural history book reviewer and throw him in the jungle for a month! It will be great!

I'd just finished Giles Milton's - Nathaniel's Nutmeg and then shortly after that I was inspired to read Redmond O'Hanlon's - Into the Heart of Borneo after meeting his daughter.
I discussed them with friends and someone recommended The Poisonwood Bible and it never even occurred to me that it was a novel.

As I said, incredibly embarrassed.
