"I seek the fountain of wealth, I am the fountain of wealth, I am the fountain, I am." - Unknown

I've put together a list of various resources: Books, Articles and links to Websites which I hope you will find as useful and helpful as I have.

I came across most of these resources through my own studies and research. Some were recommended to me by my professors, others were recommended by colleagues and or friends but by no means is this list complete.

If you've come across any helpful resources, while on your own search, please share them with us; simply use our Contact form to send us the information.

There is always enough room for a good thing.
