I love to learn and I love to read! Here are the three titles which changed my life and which I highly recommend.
I know you can find these books cheaper at big box stores, however, please consider supporting an independent bookstore. Aren't they the best kinds of bookstores to visit? If you agree, show them some wallet love!
I have an affiliate relationship with Ada's Technical Books on the West Coast (Seattle, WA) and Malaprop's Bookstore on the East Coast (Asheville, NC). Purchasing books from either supports them and gives me a little kickback to keep my blog free for you to read.
Also, if you'd like to trade a book from your current bookshelf for one on this list, consider using Paperback Swap. It's awesome!
