Mark's Book List

Here is a list of books that I have used as references for my web site. I have tried to provide short reviews to make this list useful, and I will continue to add more reviews. now has a program that pays a small referral fee to sites that link books to their web site. If you buy a book after clicking on an "" link below, 5% to 15% of the price will go to the The Secular Web. I like what they do on their web site, and this is a way that I can lend them some small support. If you use the search box below, and then buy something, they will get 5%. Sorry if this seems pedestrian to you - feel free ignore the amazon links. You can always go to the usual way and look up these books yourself.
