I love John so I'm always going to take his book recommendations seriously and I've requested and several of the books on John's list. Unfortunately we don't have all of the books but we do have quite a lot of them so I've conveniently made a list for you below if you're interested in checking them out.
Round Ireland with a Fridge - Tony Hawks
Thirsty - MT Anderson
Boy Proof - Cecil Castellucci
Will You Miss Me When I'm Gone: the Carter Family and their legacy in American music / Mark Zwonitzer with Charles HirshbergThe last summer of reason / Tahar Djaout
(If you don't have the book you're after in our collection John has the Amazon links to the books in the description of his video).
And here is a link to John's books if you're interested in checking them out and I wrote a blog post about them a couple of years ago if you're interested.
