Below are various books and other sources for those who wish to dive further into specific topics. Older material is quite often out of copyright in many countries and available online, and I have added links where appropriate BUT you are cautioned that any downloading is your own responsibility and that it is up to you to check what legal framework may be applicable in your case.

The list is by no means exhaustive and will be added to when I find the time.
