Suggested Reading Material

Every good Universtity needs a textbook or two.  Below are books I have either read myself or have been higly recommended by others but I have not gotten around to reading them yet.  Obviously you may not need to read these front to back but skim through them and use them as a reference as needed.  Many books these days are digital so that you can read them on your phone, laptop or tablet but I would suggest you purchase books of these type in a hard copy.  Should the power go out, books will be of no use unless you have a hard copy.
