September Q&R Video: Brent’s Recommended Reads

Hi friends!

Since Brent mentioned a number of fantastic books for everyone to check out in today’s Facebook Q&R video, we put together the list (with links!) of authors & titles here.

What? You may be asking yourself. More reading that’s not Brent’s books? Come on!

Think of it this way: now you have a whole list of books to read to help you procrastinate writing that Physics paper.

It’s an English paper? We got you covered, fam.

Ditto History.

You’re not in school, you say? Well then! You should have NOTHING but free time for the books below, right? Right?!

Now get reading!
