Like I said in my “About” section, I’m not going to try to give anyone tips about anything. However, I enjoy receiving tips from other folks via books and interesting articles I come across. You can see from the photo above that I’ve amassed quite a collection. Believe it or not, I’ve even read most of the books in that ridiculous pile.
As for articles, I might as well compile them here, where others can peruse them, too. As the list lengthens, I’ll probably re-organize them by general topic category.
