Studying US History (Environmental Policy of Westward Expansion) in the 90's, I read some great books.
I always asked (and continue to do this today) for books "on the edge" of what I'm studying. I will always remember reading "The Feminine Mystique" as a student in Mexico (studying at UNAM). I had an English copy, and finished in less than a week.
Today, at a coffee shop in Salinas, CA I opened up to a great page:
"Because of the feminine mystique, it is the jump from amateur to professional that is often the hardest..."
My question to readers today: What's blocking YOUR jump to being your best?
