When it comes to health, much has been written,
and little of it good. This page lists the best. It contains health and nutrition
references that are written for the layman, but generally contain clear explanations
and references to the scientific literature. The few exceptions that do not
contain references are noted.

"Must Read" List
- Crockett, Larry J. The
Turing Test and the Frame Problem. Ablex Publishing, 1994.
- This book assumes a thorough understanding of both the frame problem
and the turing test. Armed with both, it makes sense. Lacking either,
it is very tough sledding.
- Dennett, Daniel C. Consciousness
Explained. Little, Brown & Co, 1991.
- A superbly, written, well-conceived explanation of human thought processes.
- Ford, Kenneth M. The
Robot's Dilemma Revisited. Ablex Publishing, 1996.
- A collection of essays on the frame problem. Readability varies, but
tends to be slanted towards the professional, rather than the layman.
- Minsky, Marvin. Society
of Mind. Simon and Schuster, 1985.
- A seminal work that shows clearly how the mind can be conceived as
a collection of many, very small decision-making elements, each of which
acts without awareness of other elements!
