    Rabbi Ausubel- The Book Of Jewish Knowledge

    designs, thank you for sharing this. I have wondered since my teen years why the Jewish people did not embrace Christ as Christians have. I am interested in reading this book you have listed.

    So far, mine have been:

    1) "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" - Stephen Covey

    2) "First Things First" - Stephen Covey

    3) "The 5 Love Languages" - Gary Chapman

    4) "When Elephants Weep: The Emotional Lives of Animals" - Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson and Susan McCarthy

    5) "The Man Who Listens to Horses"-- Monty Roberts

    6) "Shy Boy: The Horse that Came In From The Wild" -- Monty Roberts

    7) "Horse Sense for People" -- Monty Roberts

    8) "The Soul of a Horse" - Joe Camp

    9) "Permaculture: A Designers' Manual" -- Bill Mollison

    10) "The One Straw Revolution" -- Masanobu Fukuoka

    ( I am presently working on Eckhart Tolle's "A New Earth" and "Solitary Witch: The Ultimate Book of Shadows for a New Generation" by Silver Ravenwolf. So far, they are both changing information that was taught to me as a child.)

    Only if you're a human being, and not a cabbage or something--use with caution.
