The Scholar Books

The Scholar is the career-bound student and the curious learner.  These books are recommended to serve you well no matter what you do in life. I have omitted subsections (like Psychology, History, Philosophy, etc)  and favorites that have to do with personal taste (like Dante’s Inferno or Orwell’s 1984).
