Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • $\begingroup$ I'm afraid this kind of question isn't a good fit for this site; asking for the best books is asking for a subjective recommendation, which doesn't work well on this site format. See our help center. $\endgroup$ – D.W. Jan 14 '16 at 14:08
