HI Pablo thanks for your comment, i have read most of these so if you would like more info on any of these books please let me know.
For anyone thats interested most of the links are for amazon, i bought theses books from all over the place but amazon offers reviews and market place for cheaper copies. Use the ISBN in google to find alternative sources and check ebay uk and using the book title or author name.

Wow! As Pablo said, that's a GREAT reference list.

Actually, they're all great reference lists.

I'm going to have to go back and check to see which I've read and which I haven't.

Great work.
