Here’s a great post from Mike Cougill. It’s called Mentor Texts, and as Mike writes, these are “works that you return to time after time because of the influence they have had on your life”. In this case, Mike’s looking at publications (books and articles) that have influenced his approach to our hobby.
I’ve added some of my mentor texts to the comments section of Mike’s blog. Rather than post here, I encourage you to read Mike’s blog entry and add your mentor texts there. That way, we’ll have them all in the same place. I’m always interested in learning about new sources of inspiration – so be sure to explain why and how these texts have influenced your hobby. I look forward to the list that we develop.
(Thanks, Mike, for starting this conversation!)
