The Best of Everything Nonfiction for 2009

Here is my list of the very best books, films, and documentaries that I’ve seen or read this past year. Only books or films that got a four star rating or higher made the list. Anything getting a five star rating is indicated with an asterisk. The items in this list do not necessarily have to have been released in 2009.

Review of Notorious by George Tillman, Jr.

I’m not a fan of RAP or Hip Hop. Every now and then I’ll hear something I like. For the most part, though, I’m a smooth jazz and country fan. I’m also a fan of good stories, and this story of the short life of rapper Christopher “Biggie” Wallace is a good one.
