leary.png"Stop Being Such Partisan Little B*****s." No, this isn't something uttered at dinner tables across the U.S. over the holidays, it's the subtitle of Denis Leary's latest book, Why We Don't Suck (a more reassuring title than 2008's Why We Suck). It's mission? To #MakeAmericaLaughAgain. A tall order given these politically fraught times, but Mr. Leary is up to the task.

What did the proud five-time loser at the Emmy Awards enjoy reading in 2017? Browse his picks below, and look here for more celebrity favorites. To learn more about the Amazon Books Editors' picks for the Best Books of the Year, click here.

The Cubs Way by Tom Verducci
By far the best baseball book of the year, chock full of behind-the-scenes and inside-access accounts of how the Chicago Cubs built a team talented enough to win their first title in 108 years. It literally puts you in the dugout and the clubhouse during what has come to be considered the greatest Game Seven in World Series history. Fantastic.

I'm Fine...And Other Lies by Whitney Cummings
The most hilarious supposed self-help book you will ever buy. Written by a smart, funny woman who uses her own ridiculous life mistakes to point out possible solutions for the rest of us. I laughed my ass off.

David Bowie: A Life by Dylan Jones
A must-read, incredibly diverse and detailed oral history of the rock god's entire existence. From the cradle to the grave. Best. Bowie book. Ever.
