Where can I get broad (flat) tip yellow highlighters?

September 19, 2009

It seems that the only yellow highlighters available any more are the chisel tip highlighters.  Do they sell the broad (flat) tip highlighters any more? I much prefer them to the chisel tip. Do you know where they sell the broad (flat) tip highlighters?

Seek clarity of thought? Here’s how

September 8, 2009

Are you struggling with a problem, but are unable to obtain clarity on a solution? Here’s an approach to get clarity that has worked for me: read a book with great clarity; that is, a book that expresses fundamental ideas in a simple, clear way.

I am on my fifth read of An Introduction to Mathematics by Alfred Whitehead. Every time I feel my thoughts getting muddied I pull out this book and read it. This book takes the complex subject of mathematics and describes its fundamental ideas with brilliant clarity. Reading this book brings clarity to my mind, in all of my thoughts.

Do you have a book that you enjoy reading because of its clarity of thought?
