NPR’s Favorite TV Shows Of 2017

Before we begin, a note: See how the adjective up there in that headline is “favorite,” not “best?” That’s intentional.

There’s just too much television out there for a comprehensive ranking; the TV landscape has never been more expansive than it is today. Streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon are adding so many shows so quickly they don’t so much stream as cascade. Cable gems like Game of Thrones and Insecure continue to glimmer, but don’t count out basic cable and broadcast networks — NBC’s The Good Place, for example, is the only show that all three of us agreed deserved an end-of-year shout-out.

Our list of 2017 favorites is personal and idiosyncratic, which is as it should be. TV now boasts more voices, telling more stories, than ever before, and those stories are finding discrete audiences hungry for them. TV is starting

The favorite crime books of Atlanta’s top cops and lawyers

Crime books are among the most popular genres out there. True crime. Legal fiction. Courtroom thrillers. Police procedurals. They fly off the shelves.

We asked the leaders in metro-Atlanta law enforcement as well as some of the region’s top criminal defense attorneys to name their favorites. They live these stories every day. What books get it right? Which ones inspire them?

Here — in their own words — are the books they can’t put down:

Three New Series  Returning Favorite Head to Investigation Discovery This October

This October, Investigation Discovery, America’s most-watched true crime network, celebrates the spookiest month of the year with the scariest stories of all: ones that are real.

Twenty-Five Noted Boxing Buffs Name Their Favorite Boxing Book

I recently asked a number of sage boxing people the following: “If you had to select ONE boxing book as your favorite, what would it be?” Some chose more than one.

Though not particularly sage myself, I’ll start it off with Ralph Wiley’s “Serenity: A Boxing Memoir.” I also enjoyed Mike Silver’s “The Arc of Boxing: The Rise and Decline of the Sweet Science” for the primary reason that it stirred up a lot of much needed debate between Old School and New School.

Here are the responses of twenty-five boxing buffs. The respondents are listed in alphabetical order:

JIM AMATO (writer, historian): A.J. Liebling’s “The Sweet Science.”

RUSS ANBER (elite trainer, corner man, and TV personality): “Joe Louis -Black Hero in White America” by Chris Mead. I remember reading this from cover to cover, unable to put it down. Others: “The Greatest Fight of Our Generation” by Lewis A. Erenberg, “The Sixteenth Round”

What Your Favorite Book Says About Your Personality

It’s a question that every true book-lover dreads: what’s your favorite book? Most of us have a range of answers for this one. We have the smart, academic books we trot out for professors and fellow English majors. We have the nostalgic, childhood books that let us geek out with friends. We have the sexy, cool books that we use to impress cute guys/gals at barbecues and trendy coffee shops. But deep down, each of us has at least one book that springs to mind when we hear the question “What’s your favorite book?” So here’s what your favorite book says about you.

After all, you can learn a lot about someone by judging their reading taste. The toughest customers might have a secret soft spot for Little Women. That girl you thought was so basic could be a massive fan of James
