I should admit that the title of this post is misleading.  While it is true that listed below are 10 of my favorite non-fiction books of 2014, I’ve specifically limited my picks to books that dealt with entertainment, pop culture, and the creative process.  With that in mind, here are my 10 favorite non-fiction books of 2014:

(And yes, you should read everyone of them.)

  1. Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow: My Life As A Fairy Tale by Sophia Loren
  2. Five Came Back: A Story of Hollywood and the Second World War by Mark Harris
  3. Life In Motion: An Unlikely Ballerina by Misty Copeland
  4. Werner Herzog: A Guide for the Perplexed by Paul Cronin
  5. My Salinger Year by Joanna Rakoff
  6. The Year of Reading Dangerously by Andy Miller
  7. Tinseltown: Murder, Morphine, and Madness at the Dawn of Hollywood by William J. Mann
  8. Scandals of Classic Hollywood: Sex, Deviance, and Drama From the Golden Age of American Cinema by Anne Helen Petersen
