    Never read it but I have The Inner Game of Music which is basically the same thing but more music specific - it got me through a few solo performances...

    Zen and the Art of Motorcyle Maintenance, if you are interested in the idea "What is good." Sample:

    "The principles expounded...were no longer rules to rebel against, not ultimates in themselves, but just techniques, gimmicks, for producing what really counted and stood independently of the the techniques--Quality."

    Good quality stuff in this book.

    Print out every post on TM. Thousands of entertaining pages from current and former members covering everything from the ridiculous to the sublime.

    This is out of print, and used copies are selling for $70-120. Must be the 1946 Martin Committee of books ;)
