Sharp Book Covers

I'm including in this Section the covers of a selection of the manuals, books, and other documents from my own personal library. Why just the covers and not the whole books? Well, making available just the covers has its own merits, namely:

      (a)  Sharing with everyone what books I use to learn and to create all my materials you see in this site (articles, programs, challenges).
      (b)  You can see the cover and read the text in the back cover to quickly see what the book is about, what interesting things it contains.
      (c)  You can then make an informed decision on whether you want to obtain the book or not.
      (d)  If yes, you can try and obtain the book from some source (bookstore, auction, online repository, huevo de Pascua, etc.)
      (e)  Last but not least, downloading just the covers from here is much quicker.

That's value enough to me. Think of it as a display of what's in my own collection, my own references, which you can then obtain and use to enhance yours.

All PDFs here include hi-res scans of both front and back cover (sometimes just the front cover, when the back cover is blank or has no useful info) and occasionally also miscellaneous items, such as the Quick Reference Guide, cards with diverse info supplied by the manufacturer (warranty, caveats, errata, etc.) and at times even the calc's box !
