acquittalNon-Fiction books cover many topics and I find it hard to choose just one area to write about.

With back to school on the horizon….two parenting titles “Redefining Girly: How Parents Can Fight the Stereotyping and Sexualizing of Girlhood, from Birth to Tween” by Melissa Atkins Wardy, has eye opening advice on raising a balanced, self confident girl.

“8 Keys to End Bullying : Strategies for Parents & Schools” by Signe Whitson, provides an excellent set of tools for parents and teachers in dealing with bullies.

For sheer entertainment and items of interest…“Not to be Missed: Fifty-Four Favorites From a Lifetime of Film” by Kenneth Turan, enthusiastic reviews of the author’s favorite movies through the decades.

“Good Talk Dad: The Birds and the Bees..and Other conversations We Forgot to Have”, by Bill Geist and Willie Geist, a humorous book about the shared journey of this father-son relationship.

“Acquittal: An Insider Reveals the Stories and Strategies Behind Today’s Most Infamous Verdicts” by Richard Gabriel, discusses the intricate workings of the justice system, while highlighting some very famous trials and their verdicts.
