Don't panic - you are not expected to read all these books.

I have just given a list of ones I have found to be suitable.

You obviously can't read all of these books - don't try - there are more important things to read.

If you come across some gem that I haven't mentioned, please let me know.

Most importantly: read the section on suggested reading before deciding on specific books.
