As a researcher and perpetual learner who continually seeks to educate myself and explore new learning opportunities, I believe having access to proper resources and comprehensive, well-written, and stand-alone textbooks is a crucial element in saving time and increasing educational enjoyment and efficiency.

To that end, in this section, I’m introducing some of the well-respected textbooks and other resources that I have found helpful over the course of my career. This selection can by no means be considered comprehensive; however, it is my hope that this listing will be useful to researchers, students, and interested fellows in search of high quality resources.
