QHD book list

Here and below is a list of books that our speaker Richard Bailey recommends for preparation for QHD 2013, or for further thought afterwards. Regrettably, most of them are now out-of-print or otherwise difficult to obtain. We hope to have copies of most of these available for examination at the book table on QHD, although we may not have any for sale.

You can also view this list on WorldCat and find out which libraries hold these titles.
