The Drop: New books from Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson
Some interesting books are hitting the shelves this week, including these ones:
DREAM MORE: Country star Dolly Parton wrote a new book called "Dream More: Celebrate the Dreamer in You!" She says it’s not going save the world or anything, but there might be some nuggets that really let people know how she conducts herself and her business. All the proceeds go to the Imagination Library.
ROLL ME UP: Dolly’s not the only country star writing these days. Willie Nelson wrote a book called "Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die." The recent Country Music Awards Lifetime Achievement honoree talked to Matt Lauer on "Today" and gave the most honest answer ever. When asked why he wrote the book, he joked and said it was because they offered him a bunch of money.
THE PATRIARCH: “The Patriarch” is about the remarkable life and turbulent times of Joseph P. Kennedy." Author David Nasaw went on "The Daily Show" to talk about what he learned about the political icon.
“He believed in capitalism but he also believed that unrestrained, unrestricted capitalism was going lead to disaster,” Nasaw said.
