    The War on Art, and Turning Pro, both by Steven Pressfield. If you've ever had a creative endeavor or desire to take the road less traveled, I seriously recommend these books. They are all about the internal resistance that we place on ourselves when attempting to achieve dreams, artistic or otherwise, that may go against the normal grain of society.

    He relates our resistance to our primal roots in having immense fear about unknowns and social rejection, which is somewhat relevant to the PB and this forum. We definitely live in a strange time... where it's often within our best interest to contradict our own mental tendencies that are totally outdated for our modern environment.

    I have a lot of books I'm in the middle of, but the two I'm concentrating most on are A Clash of Kings and The Night Circus.

    The Pressfields sound intriguing. I've read a few of his in the past and enjoyed them.

    I'm into

    (audio) The Yard by Alex Grecian
    (health) The Art & Science of Low Carbohydrate Living by Drs Phinney & Volek
    (non-fiction) The greater journey : Americans in Paris by David McCullough and The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins
    and (my page-turning Victorian Sensation novel on the Nook) - The Legacy of Cain by Wilkie Collins

    Yeah, I'm nuts.

    The Primal Blueprint. No seriously I am! I'm rereading it as I originally read it a couple of years ago.
