Free and bargain Non-Fiction in May 2013

As requested, here is an outline of the purpose of this thread:

We point out free and bargain Non-Fiction to each other, and occasionally recommend certain books that are/were free (or the opposite!).

Because Kindle freebies are easiest to find, the majority of the books listed are from Amazon, but freebies and bargains from other retailers and in other formats are more than welcome!

In case no retailer is specifically mentioned in a post, it is safe to assume it's for Amazon US.

Be aware that many freebies are only free for a day, so grab them fast. Enjoy!

My Mother's Rules: A Practical Guide to Becoming an Emotional Genius [Kindle Edition]
Lynn Toler (Author)


http://www.amazon.com/Mothers-Rules-..._ee_p_t_1_HKST

Quote:
In this unique, profoundly inspirational memoir, Divorce Court star Judge Lynn Toler shares her mother’s wisdom for learning to conquer anger and become immune to insult. Toler credits her mother’s “rules” for life – a life that saw her grow up the daughter of a poor teen mother and endure a husband who suffered mental illness and alcoholism – with providing the grounding for her own success and happiness. Toler shows how the mindset of “a black woman who knew how to make things work” taught her the power of knowing how to manage one’s emotional business—lessons that this book offers in wrenching stories written in spare and graceful prose. My Mother’s Rules is an unforgettable book that will captivate readers with its illustrations of how to rise above the most difficult circumstances and find peace and success in life.

The Last Madam: A Life in the New Orleans Underworld by Christine Wiltz
Premier Digital Publishing

Quote:
Norma Wallace grew up fast in the rough neighborhoods of New Orleans. In 1916, as an ambitious fifteen-year-old, she went to work as a street-walker in the French Quarter, but by 1920 was madam of what became one of the city's most lavish brothels, an establishment frequented by politicians, movie stars, gangsters, and even the notoriously corrupt police force. For decades Norma flourished, a smart, glamorous, powerful woman whose scandalous life made front-page headlines. Her lovers ran the gamut from a bootlegger who shot her during a fight, to a famed bandleader, to the boy next door, thirty-nine years her junior, who became her fifth husband.

Norma knew all of the Crescent City's dirty little secrets and used them to protect her own interests - she never got so much as a traffic ticket - until the early 1960s, when District Attorney Jim Garrison decided to clean up vice and corruption. After a jail stay, she went legitimate as successfully as she had gone criminal, with a lucrative restaurant business. To the end Norma maintained her independence, and surrendered only to an irrational, obsessive love, which ultimately led to her violent death.

In The Last Madam, author Christine Wiltz combines original research with Wallace's personal memoirs to bring to life an era in New Orleans history rife with charm and decadence, and to reveal the colorful woman who reigned as its underworld queen.

Free Short "Misery Memoir" from Harper Element

Harper Element has been publishing a lot of nonfiction about abused foster children. They're all from the UK, but they're being sold in the U.S. now, probably for the first time. Many of them have been introduced at bargain prices -- I learned about one of them here.

Here is a free short book by Casey Watson, one of the most popular (and prolific!) authors:

Those who are fascinated with the Tudors can buy "The Tudors: The Complete Story of England's Most Notorious Dynasty" by G. J. Meyer (Kindle Edition) for only $2.99 at Amazon.

Although the cover shows a picture of woman's torso in quite a revealing fashion, don't let the cover fool you. It is not about juicy private life of the Tudors. It is a general history book about the reign of the Tudors.
