    New book that everyone should read.



    If you haven't read this book, the time is now. This book is so blatantly written by an INTP it's unbelievable. His views on free thought are distinctly that of an INT, and it's easy to see how his focus in the book is on succinctness, leading me to Ti dominance. Statements that he made about the value of openness to a change in belief also are indicative of P-ness (haha). "Only when you’re free from allegiance to a specific idea, and put faith in your ability to learn, can progress happen."

    Amazon allows you to read the first 2 chapters (and unfortunately only most of the third chapter), which I highly suggest that you do. The book's focus is on everything that I could ever ask out of a book--less on telling you what to believe, and more on why you should (and shouldn't) believe whatever you believe. You'll find yourself relating to and pondering each and every point that he makes in each of the essays.

    "Yeah, nice try, Mindfire author Scott Berkun."

    If I accidentally happen across a passage of text, I’ll comfortably read it without even realising. The minute I purchase/am given a book that I consciously decide to read, it will never happen.
    What’s wrong with my ass, man.

    The time I’ve wasted.

    Eh, I didn't find it all too enlightening. Seems like a bunch of other philosophies dumbed down to increase sales.

    It sad for writers these days, their work is spread on the internet like cheap magazine articles. I've read the introduction, seems interesting. Looking forward to read all of it.

    It's worth noting that all of the essays in this book are just revised versions of essays published on this guy's site. In the book I believe they have added bits that string them together into the universal point of the whole book.

    I also just like having a physical copy of books. Kindle and e-books bother me for this reason.

    Linky link.

    It's a collection of a single man's essays previously published on his site, as stated above. Upon writing them, sales were not even of relevance. It's not so much a set of philosophies as it is a set of stimulating concepts and insights. As I said, the goal of the book is not to tell you how to think, but rather to get you thinking. I always like to be thinking.

    And the second image in your signature is a broken link. You missed the colon after "http". I'd also suggest rehosting images for the sake of sustainability. Imgur is one of the best, as images are never deleted.

    Dear David,
    as much as I find the books you recommend very interesting, I absolutely detest you for contributing to my ever growing to-read list.
    Love,
    -a very busy reader
