New Nonfiction (with commentary): 30 March 2015

New Nonfiction Titles: Week of March 30, 2015

A new series, published each Monday, sharing a selected list of new nonfiction titles to be published during the week. List originally published at The Reader's Advisor Online. Text in bold is commentary.

Auchmutey, Jim- The Class of '65: A Student, a Divided Town, and the Long Road to Forgiveness [First, I saw this and thought, oh brother, another Baby Boomer book I don't need to have anything to do with, but it actually looks like it might be an interesting longer-timeframe look at civil rights issues.]

Barker, Travis and Gavin Edwards - Can I Say: Living Large, Cheating Death, and Drums, Drums, Drums [A memoir by the drummer of Blink-182.]

Britton, Sarah - My New Roots: Inspired Plant-Based Recipes for Every Season

Butler, Shay - Fat Dad, Fat Kid ["A father-son weight loss memoir."]

Cohen, Alice Eve - The Year My Mother Came Back [Elle calls this one "a wry, magical memoir about the transcendent power of mother-daughter love." Yeah, that just doesn't do anything for me.]

Crawford, Matthew B. - The World Beyond Your Head: On Becoming an Individual in an Age of Distraction [This guy made a big splash with his earlier title Shop Class as Soulcraft, which I never got around to reading. Did anyone? How was it?]

Gates, Melinda - The Mother and Child Project [I am tired of the Gateses. I just am.]

Klink, Joanna - Excerpts From A Secret Prophecy

LaMarche, Una - Unabrow: Misadventures of a Late Bloomer [Yeah, I'm a sucker for humor, I'll try it.]

McCurley, Lt. Col. T. Mark with Kevin Maurer - Hunter Killer

Pasricha, Neil - How To Be Truly Rich: Unlocking the 9 Secrets to Happiness

Peyser, Marc - Hissing Cousins: The Untold Story of Eleanor Roosevelt and Alice Roosevelt Longworth

Richards, Carl - One-Page Financial Plan

Ronson, Jon - So You'Ve Been Publicly Shamed [Pretty super excited about this one, actually. I am in love with Jon Ronson.]

Segersten, Alissa & Tom Malterre - The Elimination Diet: Discover the Foods That Are Making You Sick and Tired—and Feel Better Fast

Simon, Scott - Unforgettable: A Son, a Mother, and the Lessons of a Lifetime [They must be planning for this to be a big title; looks like it's got a 100,000 first print run, which is a big number.]

Snyder, Kimberly - The Beauty Detox Power: Nourish Your Mind and Body for Weight Loss and Discover True Joy

Sullivan, Rosemary - Stalin's Daughter: The Extraordinary and Tumultuous Life of Svetlana Alliluyeva [Go look at the cover of this one; I've got to read it.]

Szwed, John - Billie Holiday

The Editors of O The Oprah Magazine - O's Little Book of Happiness [I'll tell you what would make me happy. To make the Editors of O personally apologize for this one, which is obviously blatant profit-mongering on the Oprah name.]

Vitagliano, Christina - Gene Simmons Is A Powerful And Attractive Man

So what do you think? Anything look good there?
