Case in point: nobody would accuse journalist Andrew Feinstein of being a shock-and-awe writer. This sense of discovery and of learning is the reward of nonfiction, and it is what kept bringing us back in 2011 to books that had nothing whatsoever to do with quirky detectives or lovelorn vampires. We read a lot about music, of course, because it provides a never-ending well from which to draw different interpretations and meanings. Less important and very unlikely to appear on a liberal arts college syllabus, but likely a good deal more fun, was longtime Spin scribbler Chuck Eddy’s magnificently titled collection Rock and Roll Always Forgets. One subject that didn’t get as much play in 2011, at least from our reviewers, was the field of autobiography.
This collection of the civil rights leader’s speeches to union audiences makes clear Dr.
Blackburn examines the influence that pre-war European radicalism had on the Union cause, the fascinating similarities and important contrasts in Lincoln and Marx’s political philosophies, and how labor activists carried the torch of emancipation into the post-war years. While not all nonfiction text is arranged in the same way, there do happen to be many common characteristics that some nonfiction titles share. The table of contents is found within the first few pages of the book, and it tells the order by page number in which information is found within the book.
The headings guide the reader through the book by  specifying the certain sections that are being read.
When an image is found in nonfiction that explains information in more detail, it is most likely a diagram, chart, graph, or map. A loved book may outlast its original owner by a generation – or more -- if well cared for.
Our writer was sometimes enraptured and occasionally enraged by Eddy’s 360-degree opinion-slinging. At one time you couldn’t glance at a bookstore display without seeing a half-dozen addiction memoirs. King’s long fellowship with the labor movement, and his thinking on the connections between labor, race and class.

For example, a table of contents, headings in bold, captions identifying pictures, diagrams, graphs, or charts, a glossary, and index might be present.
The headings are usually in bold or in a different color guiding the reader as to what section they are in. Feinstein is one of those bloodhound investigators who sifts the paper record for bits of gold with the patience of a Talmudic scholar.
But like all publishing trends, that one seems to have passed, even if a couple years too late. Unlike so many of the continent’s Middle East commentariat, though, Robert Fisk actually lives there.
Of course, King has always been best known, and most studied, for his activism on racial matters, from the 1956 Montgomery bus boycott through the 1965 Voting Rights Act. The rest is made up of primary sources, meant to aid in the understanding of Lincoln, Marx, and other important voices of the time. After several months of this lifestyle-washing in public bathrooms, eating fast food-he had considered giving up.
If the characters talk in cartoon-worthy word balloons, the book is going to be a waste of time.
His and our reward is a harrowing narrative of villainy where arms dealers, organized terrorist networks, corporate dons, and government officials collude in a kind of sordid club that ensures no dictator or warlord goes without the tools needed to stack bodies to the sky. Similarly grab-bag in style was the belles-lettres from Jonathan Lethem, The Ecstasy of Influence, which covers everything from his many years working in used-book stores (a treat for those in the know) to his investigation of why, exactly, he felt obliged to see Star Wars in the theater 21 times.
A different kind of addiction (one towards disaffection and violence) is chronicled in Andre Dubus III’s gripping Townie, in which the House of Sand and Fog novelist writes of his hard-knock childhood and difficult dance toward adulthood. From his perch in Beirut, the scandalously truthful and acidly funny Independent columnist holds forth on the apparently endless roundelay of massacres, corruption, coups, and invasions that have characterized the region.
Past those triumphs, he turned his attention to poverty as the central issue defining equality (or the lack thereof) in America. Nonfiction is more forgiving, in that subject matter can triumph over authorial artistry (or total lack thereof), nine times out of ten.

In this surprisingly sparkling collection of his columns (finally available in paperback), Fisk provides a potent perspective on everything from the Iraq to the Israeli invasions of Lebanon and the long, foolhardly tradition of Western military adventures. He packs an astonishing amount of information into a scant hundred pages, providing a fresh and powerful look at Civil War politics and social issues.
Although a sharp-eyed foreign-affairs correspondent able to file a vivid and humane dispatch from beleaguered corners of the world, Fisk also has an eye for the telling and unexpected detail.
Great opportunity, but Steve did not have enough money for gas to get from Tennessee to New York.
His public career may have started in that arena, but it ended with him as a champion for progressives around the globe. Although he had no place to stay, walking around all night with a bag that held everything that he owned, it did not get him down.
In his new book, Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success, Steve explains this as a “Pushback, Pushforward” moment.
He believes we all have these kinds of situations in life when we have to make a conscious decision to move forward with our dream or walk away. This means that one should constantly work on developing their gift, the gift that God has given each of us, so that when opportunities arise we will be ready. In other words, remove messages from yourself and others that will limit dreams.Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success is a book about success that is rich with anecdotes from Steve’s life—from sleeping in his car to becoming the $40 million dollar man! This invaluable guide is written for everyone, whether you are just beginning your career or are well situated in the c-suite.
