Books to understand reality:

Note: It is always wise to read the counter arguments to your beliefs and explore the reality behind what is, as nothing is at it seems. Occam's Razor only takes one so far, the rest you have to discover by a diversity of thoughts, opinion and explanations even if they are disturbing or unthinkable.

Online Newsletters and Ezines:

Note: It takes a lot of surfing over a long period of time to find the best online newsletters and ezines. It is recommended to take an email newsletter for 3 times, before unsubscribing, even if you are not sure. Eventually you will have a collection of ezines, which come on a periodic basis that are easy to scan and keep you up to date. Much of the information will be duplicated and appear online prior to the print news media, so you will always be ahead of the game and ahead of folks even in their own industries. The famous saying; "you can only believe half of what you read" does hold true in this venue, so beware of what you take as absolute fact, much is politically or PR motivated, nevertheless, very interesting indeed.

Spending one to two days a month at a major bookstore coffee shop allows you to scan thru Magazines and take notes, looking up the rest of the information online later. Many magazines now have an online versions, which are sent by email, not all of it, such as classified ads or contributed byline filler articles, is online, but reading online and occasionally at a bookstore will keep you up to date.

New innovations remain topics for 4-6 months covering all the angles, marketing and exploits. It is not as difficult as it looks.
