Book Recommendations by CanadianDesis

Hi all,

Here's the first compilation of the books recommended by CDs. Many thanks to Loser for the suggestion and Pink_Panther for emailing me the compiled list.

The thread that spawned this is here

I'm going to lock this thread and make it a sticky so that

a) There's no discussion attached to it and it is simply a list
b) Its always at the top of the section...

If you have anything to add to this list, please feel free to email me or any other moderator and we will do so.

ENJOY!! :up:
