A weekly 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. It's a new year--look at all the new books! Sorry for the lack of commentary today; CRjr and I are struggling with a cold that never gets better and NEVER GOES AWAY. How is that possible? Text in bold is commentary.
