Reading List

We’ve provided links to purchase many of our suggested readings, but feel free to track them down at your local library or infoshop. Many of these books are out of print, so when available, we’ve linked used copies, but otherwise, the library is probably the only way to go. Feel free to email us directly if you feel like addressing a specific situation and need advice on readings.
