Book and Course Pairings

sommelier service

Just like a good Sommelier can recommend a good wine to complement a good meal, there are many books that pair very well with online courses. Here are some pairings that I have found work well. If you have your own recommendations, please let everyone know via the comments.

I am developing this post so that pairs at a more granular level. Books and courses describe many different concepts, and sometimes we just need to learn one concept quickly.
