The Back Door
Meaningful research requires reading and trying to understand what other people think. Every person has something to say, something to add to the puzzle called life. Only through this process of acquiring knowledge do people blossom.
Many or all of the following titles are available somewhere on the web. However, those same documents likely were scanned using optical character recognition (OCR) software and will contain many typographical mistakes. All of the documents offered here have been proofread and edited. Mistakes might remain (I’m only human), but there will be very few compared to those documents derived from OCR scanning.
Additionally, all of the versions offered here have been massaged into a more eye-pleasing format, and then converted to the Adobe PDF document standard. Most of the versions found on the web are not formatted for easier reading. Also, printing a nicely formatted PDF document is far easier than printing an HTML document.
The titles listed are in no way to be construed as necessarily endorsing all the ideas and themes offered by the authors of those books and titles.
Notice: This page probably will always be under construction. In other words, if the title is not hyperlinked then I have not yet created a downloadable document.
