: INSITE BOOKS :



The insite Library and Office

Okay...so we haven't published any books yet ;), but here are the books currently in the insite library that have fed our brain and our body very, very well.  We hope to someday put them in insite's Global Music CoLab Library so our global artists can feed their art and expand their hearts with good thought.  We have to say we differ just a little from the head programming guy at MTV who brags he doesn't read anything that takes him more than 30 minutes... But, then again, that would explain MTV.

We've provided links to Amazon so you can read what the books are about and also the reader reviews.  If you can support your local bookseller and buy them there, that would be cool.
