Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: http://www.virtualschool.edu/mon/Quality/PirsigZen/
An oft-quoted book which until recently I never realised was available on-line. So far I’ve reached Chapter 2 (taken 16 days, in between other stuff) and the slower pace is a really good idea (for me !). Some of the central ideas covered have been directly applicable to conversations I’ve had recently IRL, which I wasn’t expecting. Nothing that helped the flow or that led to a resolution, but it was nice to have a deeper understanding of why.
Something that the big one is fond of asking.
