Seven more course books have joined my education library today!
The two that fall under the "I've taken some liberties with the recommended readings" category are Grain Brain and The Better Brain books; written by the same author that co-authored Power Up Your Brain.
I was really surprised by the size of the two encyclopedias though; for some reason I thought they were going to be smaller, and I am glad they are not! Excellent reference material for sure.
I already started reading Grain Brain, and plan to read Ageless Body, Timeless Mind shortly afterward. I guess that may depend on when I start my A, P, & C modules...
