Strength Training Anatomy by Frederic Delavier – A beautifully illustrated book that spotlights key muscle groups and the exercises that make them grow. In its third edition, with millions of copies in print, this book is a must have for anyone with an interest in fitness training.
Classical Music by Phil G. Goulding – I owe much of what I know about classical music–its rich history, forms, and composers–to this book. It provides a solid introduction for the uninformed and a level of detail that aficionados will find stimulating. If you are even slightly interested in classical music (and you should be) buy this book.
In Our Time by Ernest Hemingway – In my judgment, In Our Time, is the best collection of short stories from the 20th century master. Unique in their brevity, inspiring in their tone, these stories are Hemingway at the peak of his creative prowess.
