Was just going through the piles of books and came across this one that I bought and read on a camping trip a year or two ago.
..or you can give me a kickback and stick it to the man (this is presuming that I'm not "the man") by buying through the following link..
(over the past several years I have amassed enough Amazon bucks to buy myself...a copy of Alton Brown's "More Good Eats". Woot!). I'm going to buy Mr. Egger's newer two books right now.
I have no idea where I originally saw a recommendation for this book (I believe in the National Post insert "Saturday Night"), however it was a very enjoyable read, and is very well written. One of the reasons I bought it was to expose myself to better writing, as a constant exposure to terrible web writing was destroying my brain.
That is all.
Actually this leads me to a curiousity of mine - being in this profession, with its endless rate of change, I read extraordinarily few non-technical books every year - generally only when vacationing. Every other moment I fill with technical magazines, websites, dry books like "Biztalk 2004", and so on. The result is that it seriously impedes my ability to write with any creativity.
