the books

I get asked a lot which books I recommend. There are two places to find my recommendations. One is in the glossary section: when you click on individual names, events, etc, I frequently offer links to books with deeper dives. On this page I offer books that tend to cover a wide range across time and topic. Although I haven’t read every book on this website, I do my best to find those by reputable authors or with compelling subject matters. Enjoy!
