Reading List - January 2015

I've made an effort to rebuild by reading muscle. To get back to 1-3 books/week rhythm, I needed to work out my attention span. Luckily, I had some time off for the holidays. It is amazing what a week without internet on a farm will do for you.

Three keys to education via reading:

1. Choosing the right books .. Your peer group, Amazon, Good Reads, blogs, bibliographies of books you love, etc.

2. Active analysis and reflection of the books you are reading. I save notes from every book I read in a series of Google Docs. After a while, the first doc got too big and had to start a new one.

3. Mixing theory and practice. Integrate learnings into work/life projects. Balance learning, practicing, and doing.

A Frame-by-Frame Rebuttal to XKCD's Pickup Artist Comic

On Tynan

The only web comic I read is XKCD. It's smart, funny, and often times educational. I'm a fan. The latest comic is a criticism of pickup. There ARE certainly valid criticisms of pickup, but Randall took a cheap and inaccurate shot at it.  I've shrunken it below, but you can see the original here.

I'm one of the main characters of The Game, have been going out every night since February first (except the last week, where I got caught up on some work), and am friends with most of guys who contributed substantially to the pickup community. In other words, I know what I'm talking about.

All of those guys are either too busy to defend pickup, or just sick of having to do it yet again. But hey, it's Thursday night and I haven't written a blog post this week, so I'll take a crack at it.
