!BOOKS BOOKS BOOKS!
I often get asked by students/studio owners/teacher trainers about what books to read or not to read, in various subjects. I guess it is the fact that I often quote books, philosophy and also my own findings from making research for my own writing.
So here are some books I vouch for and recommend. Some of them are perhaps pt of print at the moment, but you can always find copies if you search around. Don´t forget to look at libraries and ask friends or on social media.
