New Nonfiction: 16 February 2015

Baird, Mimi - He Wanted The Moon: the madness and medical genius of Dr. Perry Baird, and his daughter's quest to know him (I have no idea who Dr. Perry Baird is, but this sounds interesting all the same.)

DiSpirito, Rocco - Cook Your Butt Off!

Fraser, Steve – The Age of Acquiescence: The Life and Death of American Resistance to Organized Wealth and Power (this just sounds interesting, if sad.)

Green, Lisa - On Your Case: A Comprehensive, Compassionate (and Only Slightly Bossy) Legal Guide for Every Stage of a Woman’s Life

Jacquet, Jennifer - Is Shame Necessary?

Jobrani, Maz - I’m Not a Terrorist, But I’ve Played One On TV: Memoirs of a Middle Eastern Funny Man (I only know Jobrani's name because he sometimes appears on the awesome NPR program Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me, but I'll check out the memoir anyway.)

Kotlikoff, Laurence J. – Get What’s Yours: The Secrets to Maxing Out Your Social Security

Mayer, Catherine – Born to Be King: Prince Charles on Planet Windsor (As an Anglophile I'm probably required to look at this.)

Pilon, Mary - The Monopolists: Obsession, Fury, and the Scandal Behind the World’s Favorite Board Game

Turner, Jessica N. - The Fringe Hours: Making Time for You

Wilson, Charlie - I Am Charlie Wilson

So what do you think? Anything look good there?
