New Nonfiction (with commentary): 15 June 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.

Ansari, Aziz - Modern Romance [50,000 first printing. Actually, I wasn't that interested in this one until I read the description; it's an exploration of modern love, complete with research and interviews, but written by comedian Ansari.]
Apatow, Judd - Sick in the Head [I think Apatow's movies, like Knocked Up and The Forty-Year-Old Virgin, were okay, but they're always at least 30 minutes too long. I'm guessing even if this book is good it will be 100 pages too long. 100,000 first printing.]
Bingham, Emily -Irrepressible: The Jazz Age Life of Henrietta Bingham [It's hard not to be interested in any book about the Jazz Age, I think.]
Bourne, Joel K., Jr. -The End of Plenty: The Race to Feed a Crowded World [Mr. CR has begged me to stop bringing home downer books, so I can't get this one just yet.]
Carlson, Gretchen - Getting Real [I'm so proud of myself for not knowing that Carlson is a FOX news anchor before I went to look this book up. 100,000 first printing.]
Dotti, Luca -Audrey at Home: Memories of My Mother’s Kitchen
Pope Francis - Encountering Truth: Meeting God in the Everyday [Around here we call the pope Frankie Argentina, and we do so with all due respect, because I am a fan. I am not a big reader of religion or spirituality books, though.]
Keret, Etgar - The Seven Good Years [Keret is an Israeli writer best known for his fiction and short stories; this is is first collection of nonfiction; a memoir of sorts.]
Kurson, Robert -  Pirate Hunters: Treasure, Obsession, and the Search for a Legendary Pirate Ship [100,000 first printing. True Adventure title from the author who brought you the very popular Shadow Divers.]
Lacey, Robert - Model Woman: Eileen Ford and the Business of Beauty [OOooohh, I love Robert Lacey, author of titles like The Year 1000, Great Tales from English History, Ford: The Men and the Machine.]
Masear, Terry -Fastest Things on Wings: Rescuing Hummingbirds in Hollywood
Mr. Kate (Kate Albrecht) - A Hot Glue Gun Mess: Funny Stories, Pretty DIY Projects [I'm completely bored by DIY projects and the lifestyle. The thought of making anything with a hot-glue gun makes me die inside.]
Princenthal, Nancy - Agnes Martin: Her Life and Art
Smart, Geoff - Power Score: Your Formula for Leadership Success
Thomas, Evan- Being Nixon: A Man Divided [Actually, I should read something about Richard Nixon. I never have.]
Witt, Stephen - How Music Got Free: The End of an Industry, the Turn of the Century, and the Patient Zero of Privacy [This one sounds interesting too.]

So. What do you think? Anything look good there?
