    Some interesting books here. The ones that appeal to me the most are Johnson’s, and the Hager and Stauffer books.

      The Johnson book is a bear. I am probably going to wait until the summer to read it. The Stauffer book came as and Advanced Proof and won’t be released until the summer. It looks interesting as well.
