ASE Bibliography

Throughout the research and writing of Anti-Social Engineering the Hyper-Manipulated Self, I have had the opportunity to learn much from the objects of this bibliography, even if it was only to discover what to ignore. Thus, these entries are not necessarily to be considered recommendations, but every one of them will teach you something.
