I am certain I have missed many worthy books here and will certainly be adding more to the list as seems appropriate. Each of these books were recommendations from mentors, friends, family, instructors, coaches, and a few were discovered while exploring one rabbit hole or another. As with anything, take what you can use and leave the rest!
