About meI am an electrical engineer with a heavy interest in the social sciences and languages.

About my libraryWhile I have some books from my childhood, my library started to build my second year of college when I realized that selling my previous semester textbooks was a bad idea. I quickly realized that I would need to refer to those books off and on for the rest of my career. So it was then that I kept almost every book that I have ever bought. My collection started to really grow when I discovered the intrinsic complexities of the social sciences. As an engineer, I was instructed in the immutable physical sciences. But I found that so-called laws in the social sciences do not work as reliably as say the law of gravity or Kirchoff's current law. So I started reading and buying books on those topics. Anyway, the social sciences opened my eyes and mind to all sorts of related topics... and so grew out my library.
