Sometimes people ask me for recommendations about books they can read for specific problems. After writing down the same titles over and over again, it finally occurred to me that I should put a list on this website so I could direct people to it.

This is not a "best of" list. It is simply a list of books that I favor. From time-to-time, I add to it.
