          1. What about the book from Pichet (sp?) Ong? I think that was suggested, but if not, that is fine.

            and is the Lebovitz Perfect Scoop, only that book or the website too which has been discussed.

              You are totally correct! I have it on my list and forgot to type it in. I'll write to the monitors and ask if they can add it. SORRY again!

              I'LL ENTER IT HERE AS WELL SO THAT FOLKS MIGHT SEE IT.

              THE SWEET SPOT by P. Ong is an acceptable choice even tho it's not on my list.

              Regarding the Lebovitz web site: somebody did post about "being in favor" of that along with The Perfect Scoop, but I didn't notice it. Hard to pick stuff out when it's in the middle of lots of posts and not in caps.

              HEY YOUSE GUYS! You can vote for LEBOVITZ' WEB SITE along with PERFECT SCOOP as a duel choice.

                  2. All of the ones winning votes so far are priorities for me, but my vote goes to THE SWEET SPOT by P. Ong.
