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.
Archer, Dale -The ADHD Advantage: What You Thought Was a Diagnosis May Be Your Greatest Strength [The tagline of this one promises that not only is Archer an MD who understands ADHD, he has it.]
Barbassa, Juliana - Dancing with the Devil in the City of God: Rio de Janeiro on the Brink [A "city biography" by a journalist and native of Brazil. 50,000 first printing. I LOVE "city biographies," if we can call them that, so might look into this. I don't know much at all about South America.]
Bukowski, Charles - On Writing [A collection of correspondence in which novelist Bukowski "shares his insights on the art of creation".]
Davis, Deborah - The Trip: Andy Warhol's Plastic Fantastic Cross-Country Adventure ["a book about a little-known road trip Andy Warhol took from New York to LA in 1963, and how that journey—and the numerous artists and celebrities he encountered—profoundly influenced his life and art". 60,000 first printing.]
MacAskill, William - Doing Good Better: How Effective Altruism Can Help You Make a Difference [From Wikipedia: "William MacAskill is a Scottish philosopher and cofounder of the effective altruism movement."]
McFadden, Johnjoe & Jim Al-Khalili - Life on the Edge: The Coming of Age of Quantum Biology [Yet more interesting-sounding science that I won't have the time to read, or, more likely, the brains to understand even if I do read it.]
Peralta, Dan-el Padilla - Undocumented: A Dominican Boy's Odyssey from a Homeless Shelter to the Ivy League
So. What do you think? Anything look good there?
