Spinster, by Kate Bolick: Interesting, but depressing in the end?

New Nonfiction (with commentary): 13 July 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.

Amore, Anthony M. - The Art of the Con: The Most Notorious Fakes, Frauds, and Forgeries in the Art World [Amore is the head of security and chief investigator at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. I'm all over this one; I LOVE art world true crime. 35,000 first printing.]
Braestrup, Kate - Anchor and Flares: A Memoir of Motherhood, Hope, and Service [Braestrup is a well-known memoirist; one of her better-known titles is Here If You Need Me, in which she discussed her husband's untimely death.]
Brown, Leanne - Good and Cheap: Eat Well on $4/Day [95,000 first printing.]
Fei, Deanna - Girl in Glass: How My “Distressed Baby” Defied the Odds, Shamed a CEO, and Taught Me the Essence of Love, Heartbreak, and Miracles [75,000 first printing.]
Knight, Molly - The Best Team Money Can Buy: The Los Angeles Dodgers' Wild Struggle to Build a Baseball Powerhouse [I like baseball, but who can keep up with the baseball books? There's like a thousand new ones every year. 50,000 first printing.]
LeDoux, Joseph - Anxious: Using the Brain To Understand and Treat Fear and Anxiety [I read books about anxiety the way I used to read books about dating. Mainly for entertainment, but still quietly hoping I might still learn something useful.]
LeFevre, Jon – Straight to Hell: True Tales of Deviance, Debauchery, and Billion-Dollar Deals
Link, Mardi Jo - The Drummond Girls: A Story of Fierce Friendship Beyond Time and Chance [Billed as "An inspiring and heartfelt memoir about the friendship between eight women forged over two decades." I typically HATE books about women's friendships. Will give it a pass.]
Marx, Patty - Let’s Be Less Stupid: An Attempt to Maintain My Mental Faculties [Here's the ad copy: "Former SNL writer and The New Yorker staffer Patty Marx... uses her sharp-edged humor to tackle the most difficult facet of aging: the mind's decline." I must have this one!]
Marzo, Clay & Robert Yehling - Just Add Water: A Surfing Savant's Journey with Asperger's
Mosler, Layne - Driving Hungry: A Memoir [Here's the description: "A delicious memoir that takes us from Buenos Aires to New York to Berlin as the author, driven by wanderlust and an unrelenting appetite, finds purpose, passion, and unexpected flavor." Yeah, I'm just not feeling it.]
Rosenfelt, David - Lessons from Tara: Life Advice from the World's Most Brilliant Dogs ["Brilliant" and "dog" in the same title, that's funny. If you can't tell--I'm a cat person. 50,000 first printing.]
Safina, Carl - Beyond Words: What Animals Think and Feel
Saviano, Roberto - Zero Zero Zero: Look at Cocaine and All You See Is Powder. Look Through Cocaine and You See the World [Saviano is a super-interesting journalist and writer. I read his book Gomorrah, about the mafia in Naples, and it was fascinating. 50,000 first printing.]
Swaim, Barton - The Speechwriter: A Brief Education in Politics
Thomas, Mathilde - French Beauty Solution: Time-Tested Secrets To Look and Feel Beautiful Inside and Out [I ask again: Who has the energy?]
Wald, Elijah - Dylan Goes Electric!: Newport, Seeger, Dylan, and the Night That Split the Sixties [I never want to read anything about Bob Dylan. I don't know why, really. I just don't.]
Wilczek, Frank - Beautiful Question: Finding Nature’s Deep Design [Billed as a "mind-shifting book that braids the age-old quest for beauty and the age-old quest for truth into a thrilling synthesis." Actually, it sounds kinda good. I wish I had more time to read and concentrate on science books.]

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