Recommended Reading

This section replaces the Book Review section from the “lost” website.  It is slightly different in that it simply lists recommended books and their authors.  The extremely brief review in on the “old’ site gave so little information I deemed it not worth trying to reproduce.  From time to time there will be additions to the list.  At the time of addition I will post a special notice.
