Each chapter is relatively self-contained, and ends with a section on References and Resources related to that chapter. While most of the items in References and Resources are specifically cited within the chapter, occasionally one will fall into the category of "additional suggested resources.
This lists all of the videos referenced in the book, organized by the chapter in which they appeared. Getting Started When I study a subject that is somewhat unfamiliar to me, I like to look at some of the older literature in the field.
