New Book Alert: February 10-14, 2020

My weekly collection of new and notable books for your pop culture pleasure and edification: #ReadMoreTweetLess.

Sympathy for the Drummer: Why Charlie Watts Matters by Mike Edison (Backbeat Books; Biography on sale November 5, 2019): “Please allow me to introduce myself / I’m a man of wealth and taste / I’ve been around for a long, long year.” Charlie Watts right? While everybody knows Mick and Kieth Charlie is in the back making sure the train runs on time. #NewBookAlert for February 10, 2020.

The Rise and Fall of Charles Lindbergh by Candace Fleming (Schwartz & Wade; Biography on sale February 11, 2020): I actually don’t know much about Charles Lindbergh: just half-truths and worthless TMZ gossip. Be great to sit down with something researched and hopefully factual to get to know this fascinating American. Though this is a YA book; still a good start. #NewBookAlert for February 11, 2020.

No Way but to Fight: George Foreman and the Business of Boxing by Andrew R. M. Smith (University of Texas Press; Handle Your Business on sale January 10, 2020): Yes! Lately athletes’ wealth is crazy impressive (it wasn’t always like this) and this has become the new sweet science. It’d be great to “grill George Foreman” and learn how he succeeds. Shout to Kobe and Jeter and Michael Jordan of course. #NewBookAlert for February 12, 2020.

Billion Dollar Brand Club: How Dollar Shave Club, Warby Parker, and Other Disruptors Are Remaking What We Buy by Lawrence Ingrassia (Henry Holt and Company; Business on sale January 28, 2020): Dollar Shave Club is amazing! Remember I am not just a member I’m also…actually that’s all I am. Though I am curious about how it was all built. I wanna see the old man behind the wizard. #NewBookAlert for February 13, 2020.

Brother & Sister: A Memoir by Diane Keaton (Knopf Doubleday; Memoir on sale February 4, 2020): Figured since it’s Valentine’s Day and lotta people “love” Diane Keaton: from her excellent Woody Allen work to her current old people having sex movies. This is another memoir from her and her wild life. #NewBookAlert for February 14, 2020.
