Chris McGuire - Schlepp Films

Writer - Producer - Director - Actor


Study, Study, Study!
The following 'Notes' are study guides that I have created from books that I have read.  I am not the author, I did not write any of these myself. I merely typed up what I thought were useful bits of information. I invite everyone to reference and purchase the original works of which these came from. These free Notes are meant as a study guide and an introduction to these concepts/ideas.  I am a FAN of all of these works and highly recommend you seeking out the source material.
