Di’s Recommended Reading List

There are many well written books available in the marketplace, sometimes on the same subject but by different authors, which makes it’s very difficult to decide which is the right book for you. Not only that, you simply may not have the time to spend countless hours looking through different books before you decide what to buy.

This is why Recommended Reading has been included on Wrapping it Up.

Written by numerous authors, the e-Books are selected because of several factors: first and foremost we purchased them to determine if they were suitable for a specific subject area; second, they needed to be well written, well presented and factual without jargon and verbosity.

All books presented are e-Books.
