I walked into a library yesterday and noticed there were a whole lot of books.
I haven’t read any of them but would like to learn more about them. Does anyone have a list of the five best books to read for someone too lazy to simply find something that I am interested in knowing and reading about it?
I know, I COULD think of what I would like to know about…and THEN go look for a book about that topic…but, aw shit, I have things to do and people to see.
It’s funny. You seem to be a respected poster around here.
I expected someone to give a snarky half-a**ed reply to my post, but I didn’t think it would come from you. I guess being a big time poster requires having a big time ego to go along with it; treating others with courtesy and respect is just far too much to ask.
I’ve posted questions like this to the “Hardgainer” roundtable. I didn’t get a response like this. Also, if someone were to ask me to list a few good training books, I could name some.
And you know what’s funny about the library example? Libraries often have featured books, etc. to point people in some direction.
It’s one thing to ask to for summaries of articles you’re too lazy to read. It’s another to ask for a starting point.
If you don’t like my query, fine. But there is no excuse for an arrogant reply like that.
Actually, posters like Vroom have taken the time to list an entire thread’s worth of info along with articles to read in the beginner’s forum. To ignore all of that help makes me wonder just how motivated you really are. You have a site that even includes a search function that can focus in on JUST the articles.
I am confused as to how someone would need even more guidance as far as “what to read”.
