Sometimes we want to learn a subject and always the hardest part is just getting the basics.I had a recent experience here because I posted something that ended up showing that I was not even basically competent on the subject. Rather than to feel guilty or upset over it I decided that perhaps a better way of handling it (as well as a number of other blind spots) was to poll other members who have expertise in areas to give some idea of what books or other media is essential to getting a…See More
