Textbooks that I didn’t buy for the NLUTIE Program:

I am not going to list these books as they are way too numerous to mention! The reason that I didn’t buy them is not because I stole them, but articles and chapters were supplied to me by the teachers of many classes in the form of downloaded pdf’s. Whether or not this could be construed as theft I am not going comment on, but I do thank the instructors of sparing me the expense, so this section will remain vacant to protect me from whoever is on the review committee and in violation of copyright law as well as protecting them from the copyright police.
