Keep a large lump of halite handy for that one. Mortimer had delusions of omniscience.
I'll add some suggestions to the list soon, I hope. Wait a second. OK, here are one and a fraction:
The one:
If it hasn't been mentioned yet, absolutely, the 2nd Ed. of _The Retreat to Commitment_ by Bartley.
The fraction:
Something by Edward de Bono.
Something by Lakoff and Johnson (keep that halite handy, but it's very interesting work).

Are we alllowed any fiction?
