Recommended Books

This page contains the most recommended books reviewed on Solas and Struggles. The list will expand and be updated as more books are reviewed and will eventually begin to include recommendations not reviewed on the site. Each book here is recommended based on a variety of factors, however I have made sure to include only those I believe to be solid and trustworthy. A book’s appearance on this list does mean that I recommend everything the author has written, nor that the book is infallible.
