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

Skin in the Game: Hidden Asymmetries in Daily Life by Nassim Nicholas Taleb (Random House, Nonfiction on sale February 27): “Let us conjecture that the formation of moral values in society doesn’t come from the evolution of the consensus. No, it is the most intolerant person who imposes virtue on others precisely because of that intolerance.” Yes! 100% Yes! #NewBookAlert for February 27, 2018.

The Soul of Basketball: The Epic Showdown Between LeBron, Kobe, Doc, and Dirk That Saved the NBA by Ian Thomsen (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Nonfiction on sale April 17): It’s NBA and Kobe related so I’ll happily pick it up. #NewBookAlert for February 28, 2018.

Basketball: Great Writing About America’s Game Alexander Wolff editor; Foreword by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (Library of America , Nonfiction on sale February 27): Michael Jordan is on the cover so I’m automatically picking this up. Also forward by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar yo…that’s a win right there. #BallorFall #GOAT #NewBookAlert for 2 Mar 2018:
