Questions relating to requests for basic reference materials on a broad area of study.

Imprecise questions on book recommendations tend to generate opinion-based answers. In order to not be considered opinion-based, and therefore closed, book recommendation questions must provide following information:

  • Broad area of study (default)
  • Scope of the book i.e. what topics should it cover. This should be a detailed list of topics that the OP is interested to study.
  • Level of the book i.e. should it be a suitable/intended for beginners or should it have detailed information suited for an advanced reader

Other useful information includes why some books are specifically not deemed suitable.
