Surprisingly enough, funeral directors hear some pretty crazy stuff on the job — as evidenced by Does This Mean You'll See Me Naked? ($10). A collection of stories from a man who's been in the business since the '70s, this 256 page paperback offers humorous, interesting, and entertaining stories of life after death — and we don't mean the afterlife.
Basketball, more than any other sport, is as much remembered for its style — afros, short shorts, the red, white, and blue balls of the ABA — as it is for its stats, and The Undisputed Guide to Pro Basketball History ($17) celebrates this like no other hoops tome. Written by the bloggers of FreeDarko, the book is equal parts entertaining and enlightening, filled with charts, illustrations, and stories that will please any true fan of the game. [Thanks, Deron]
The Fab Four are the subjects of some of the last century's most iconic photos — which makes it all the more amazing that so many slipped by unnoticed. The Lost Beatles Photographs ($19) is a 192 page collection of images culled from the collection of Bob Bonis, who served as the band's tour manager for all three U.S. tours, in 1964, 1965, and 1966. From casual backstage moments on vacation and on the road to photos of the legendary group on stage, it's a must have addition to any fan's library.
