recommended reading

This page will tend to be under perpetual construction so check back often. I have developed the habit of retaining typed notes (or, less frequently, highlighting my copies) of just about everything I read. As you will see, I often quote from these notes as they may relate to a particular topic. You will be ahead of the game if you are familiar with the more fundamental recommendations below.
