Appendix II - Book Recommendations

I’ve read a lot of different types of books, but the list below are books that I've used to help me along my personal journey. Obviously, this list isn’t exhaustive and it doesn’t cover the books specific to the industry I’m in or the trade magazines/publications that anyone serious about their craft would have to constantly be checking:

  • The Bible/The Quran/other religious or ancient texts/mythology - Some discredit these writings, but in ancient times before everyone was allowed or even able to learn how to read and write these were the stories our ancestors/the ancients made sure were passed down so that we can understand our God, world, the meaning of life, and/or ourselves. It is foolish in my opinion to overlook that regardless of how you feel toward organized religion in the modern era.
