Steve’s Reading List

This is not an exhaustive list but all of these are books that I have read and found to be interesting and/or educational. The books that have an asterisk by them I highly recommend. You might notice there are no fiction books listed. I do read fiction occasionally but the bulk of my reading is current events and issues and biographies and history so I limited the list to those items.
