A Behaviorists' Bookshelf (Ongoing)

     I have decided to keep an ongoing list of books related to education, behavior analysis, and other randomness that I think are useful or want to buy. I will add brief recommendations & reservations as time permits. Not to say that These lists are in no particular order. And, obviously, not APA citations (Author/Editor - Title - Edition if applicable). While I value all of my purchases, and would return a title if it were outright awful, books with a + after denote highly recommend, books with a - after means the title is owned but with "reservations," and  books with nothing after mean they're good enough to warrant a purchase but are in my opinion a low priority.

     This list is obviously not exhaustive, and will be an ongoing project to update.

     Feel free to post any recommendations at the bottom! I'd love to know what reader's are finding useful!
