Everyone is feeling overwhelmed about pretty much everything, so we wanted to give some suggestions for books we go back to repeatedly when we need them.  Many of these authors have written more but I tried to pick a sampling, you can search for other books by them using the search box at the top of the page, or email me if you have questions- Alex
