More Than Just a Catchy Title

I want to read these books, which all happen to have great titles and great reviews. However, I don't have time right now, so I am graciously extending the opportunity to you. These books are even in the library right now.

The Highly Effective Detective
by Richard Yancey. A security guard-turned-PI's effectiveness does not extend to actually getting a license to practice.
This Is Your Brain on Music by Daniel Levitin. A psychologist writes about music's effect on your brain.
Zugzwang by Ronan Bennett. Zugzwang is a chess term referring to a situation in which a player can only make things worse. Zugzwang the book is about a psychoanalyst in pre-revolutionary St. Petersburg who must crack a conspiracy in order to prove his own innocence.
Teach Like Your Hair's on Fire by Rafe Esquith. I only teach computer classes, but this sounds great.
Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians by Brandon Sanderson. Dang, now the truth about librarians is out.
