It’s wise to never judge a book by its cover…especially when it comes to non-fiction books! These select titles are a smattering of non-fiction books found throughout our collection that sound like they could easily be a good fiction read…enjoy!

Barkley, Charles. I May Be Wrong But I Doubt It

(796.323 B)

Charles Barkley has never been shy about expressing his opinions. Michael Jordan once said that we all want to say the things that Barkley says, but we don’t dare. But even die-hard followers of the all-time NBA great, the star of TNT’s Inside the NBA and CNN’s TalkBack Live, will be astonished by just how candid and provocative he is in this book—and just how big his ambitions are.

Browne, Jill Conner. The Sweet Potato Queen’s Book of Love (814.54 B)

Based on the Queens’ collective experience in matters of the heart, this droll and hilarious book takes a look at life and love from a female drag queen’s point of view.

Carlin, George. Brain Droppings (818.5402 C)

The thinking person’s comic who uses words as weapons, George Carlin shares cutting-edge opinion and observational humor in Brain Droppings. Filled with thoughts, musings, questions, lists, beliefs, curiosities, monologues, assertions, assumptions, and other verbal ordeals, Brain Droppings is infectiously funny.

Horn, Sam. Tongue Fu! (153.6 H)

If you’ve ever been tongue-tied – or if you’ve ever given a tongue-lashing (and regretted it), Tongue Fu! offers constructive alternatives that will turn hostility into harmony and help you avoid a mental breakdown in the face of aggression.

Jillette, Penn. Pen and Teller’s How to Play in Traffic (818.5402)

Penn and Teller present practical jokes, miracles, and anecdotes that make travel so much fun, who cares if you’re never invited back! You don’t have to be a trickster to enjoy How to Play in Traffic.
