And without making too much advertisement for my favourite bookstore - Bookdepository has 95% of the books that amazon.com has, they have it at a 10-40% lower price, and they ship worldwide without shipping fees. The anatomy book is the price of a few cups of coffee or a few beers . If you want an anatomy book - buy that one. It's from 1960's, but i still think it's the best i have.
- When you cannot win a large victory, learn to settle for a small one.
