I have to go with Stephen Pinker's The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence has Declined

The book encompasses much of human history to arrive at its conclusion that we're living in the most peaceful time in history. The statistics and arguments Pinker relies on are extremely convincing, and the author isn't shy about noting shortcomings in the data; I just love how Pinker structures his arguments and the depth of his research.

Non-fiction and a subject that could be dry, but totally uplifting and a wonderful read.
