I'm looking to fill up my christmas list with some good books, and I'm looking for suggestions and opinions about books on the following topics:

1) Distressed securities investing (heard a lot about Moyer, any other good ones?)

2) Corporate bankruptcy/restructuring

3) Historical finance/economics, open to anything but mainly interested in pre-1830's

4) Entrepreneurial finance, or owning/running a small business

Open to suggests outside these categories too, thanks.

Ignore everyone's suggestions and read the biography of JP Morgan: "The House of Morgan: An American Banking Dynasty and the Rise of Modern Finance" - It's brutally long but covers literally every category you mentioned, and is incredibly interesting and well written.
