Favorite Books on the Prophet (saws)

Salams all - 
i cant stress enough how non-religion related these books can be in order to post what you are reading but i am responding to someone who posted before about needing to read the Qur'an and Hadith... personally, ive found without historical context, the Qur'an is kind of rough. 

i recently read IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE PROPHET by Tariq Ramadan and thought it was one of the most readable books about Muhammad (saws)... he discusses what happened to him in his time and how that can relate to us in our time. He mentions ayat from the Qur'an and quotes hadith... it was a super quick read because it was so accessible... it wasnt dense with theology and history... 

has anyone else read it?
