Free and bargain Non-Fiction in June 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!

Univ of Chicago freebie:

Crossing: A Memoir
DEIRDRE N. MCCLOSKEY


Quote:
“When I received Crossing, I wondered why the editors had not designated it for review by someone gay, or someone involved in the transgendered community. Reading it, I realized that I—a lifelong heterosexual woman—need this book. All of us need to consider the way our culture shapes gender expectations and makes unspoken but profoundly rigid gender assignments based on physical appearance, apparel, gait, gestures, voice and so on.… This is a woman worth knowing. She has given us a highly readable, dramatic account of her crossing.”—Maxine Kumin, The New York Times Book Review

A possible warning for folks thinking about grabbing the Templar book. From what I've been able to find out the eBook version is missing the maps and photos from the print version.

I just wish it wasn't in topaz format (most of their older titles are, it seems).

Ah well, it is free.
