Astonishing, history-making jaw-dropper answers many curious questions about the 3rd Reich - for instance, how do you stop a blitzkrieg wherein the attacking army (including Rommel) doesn't sleep for 5 days straight and thinks itself invincible?
A sociologist looks at why so many turn to for-profit colleges that don't deliver -- but it's so much more interesting than that sounds, because it's really an insightful and well-written critique of pretty much all of modern life.
McAvoy is a gentle Scottish giant, out of place and time almost in the local Humberside police. With the love and support of two women, his Irish traveler wife, Roisin, and his stalwart boss, Trish Pharoah, he is a force of nature. Mark's baddies are serial killers, criminal gangs and men with vendettas. Readers of Ian Rankin, Denise Mina and Mark Billingham will enjoy this great series and new character.
April is the cruelest month... Except for being National Poetry month! So escape "this twittering world" and curl up with some Eliot.

I admit, I picked up this book expecting to enjoy reading about the downfall of a Republican congressman.

Six crew members wake into regenerated bodies after being murdered on a generation ship heading to a new planet. Their memories and logs from the last twenty-five years have been wiped, but they know this: One of them is the killer - and whoever it is may not even know it. This murder mystery is the literary equivalent of that scene in Butch Cassidy where he and Sundance leap off a cliff, swearing the whole way. A heart-pounding sci fi thriller.
Okay, so it's the complete text of the iTunes Terms & Conditions User Agreement. But also: It's a stunning visual history of comics art by a virtuoso artist. Every page is re-imagined from a page of classic or contemporary comics, paying faithful homage to the original artists' style. It's beautifully bonkers, and delightful game of "identify the artist."
This poignant graphic memoir about a Vietnamese family's immigration to the US by boat in the 70s is a deeply affecting reminder of the fragility, humor and challenge of America for so many of its people. An important book for these times.
An honest, approachable (and occasionally funny) book on yoga and beginning your practice. Stanley wrote the book "because all yoga bodies deserve to be represented in print."
