Books

I could easily list a dozen or more books in each of these categories. My intention here is not to give an exhaustive bibliography. Most folks don’t have time for that. I’ve listed my favorite few books in each category. Each of them refers to several other books so you can follow up with more if you’d like. Of course, if you have any questions, just e-mail. I’ll be glad to help.
