Below are some free (available in public domain) documents that I've found useful and re - post them here. I don't read much admittedly, and I don't think one probably should read at all in order to live well :-). My habit of reading is read as little as I have to, and understand as much as I can, in a sense, books are just primers (spark plugs) for your thinking and imagination. The books, documents... need to be correct and precise on the technical sides, and inspirational on the other sides. If you can not learn anything from them, then they're just some worthless stack of papers. Below is a very short list on some of my topics of concern.
