Book recommendation list (thanks to Dave Grossman for compiling this);
Note: in case you don’t listen to the episode, there are books mentioned that I talk about, but am not necessarily saying are recommended. This list is just to reference what is talked about in the episode. Also, due to my tangential thinking, the categories don’t always work cleanly and the list is not complete.
