As a sort of rule, the earlier the work the better. The book that made him was 'Hells Angels', which is just brilliant. If you want his most astute political articles, have a read of 'The Great Shark Hunt' which is by far the best of his compilation books.
I'm an unashamed fan, but a lot of his later stuff only showed flashes of what was sustained brilliance in his earlier writing.
Back on topic, I'm working through Bill Brysons back catalogue.
