Idea! non-medical books 4 medical people?

As we all have experienced , the USMLE brings out the best and the worst in all of us . So, i'm looking for advice to help keep me motivated and relieve some stress simultaneously.

Are there any books ya'll have read through med school/ step studying that helped get you through this time? Motivational/ anecdotal/ biographies/fiction/even semi-worldly educational... leisure reading that you think will be helpful in either reminding me how awesome medicine is, or how awesome i can be. Thanks

Ps- someone recommended Moonwalking with Einstein. Its an interesting selection and im looking into it
