Books / Resources

I wanted to include a list of all the books and source material that have helped me and continue to help me to write this blog. I have included links, where possible, for you to go and purchase your own copy, (or a more updated version).

Books                                                                                                                                                (This is not meant to be an extensive bibliography, these are merely the books in my own personal collection, many of which have been used as source material for the writing of the blogs)
