Older Books

I’ve written a lot of books over the years. If they’re in this list of older books, they’re not recommended for purchase. If you somehow find the following books on shelves (virtual or otherwise), I do not recommend that you purchase them—technology moves quickly and they are unlikely to be of much use. They are listed here for historical purposes only (aka “so I remember”).
