Smart Mule:
Pono, James Arthur Ray was in The Secret.

Pono Aloha:
Sky, thanks, ugh. I see Rhonda has a new book out, "The magic." I always feel a magic repulsion with these books. I pick them up, read one sentence, and put it down. Is that book full of frauds too?

Hmmm....I have an excel sheet that is a suggested reading list.  It was given to me by one of the members of the group I belonged to for 10 years.  I am sure that there a few books on the list that are reputable.  IE Vine Deloria, and some other anthropological books.  However, There is a whole slew that I know are pure crap.  Now if I can just find a way to attach the spreadsheet to a post.... any thoughts?


would be interesting to see.

So here is the list.  Here is my disclaimer.  The list is unabridged.  I am not stating an opinion as to wether all of these books are fradulent or not.  I am sure many of them are.  I am sure some are not.  This list was compiled by a "ceremonial leader", as a tool to help people.
If a book is reputable, let me know and I will edit this post and remove it, so as to not confuse anyone.
