Books, DVDs, Lecture Sets etc. I have studied on relevant topics

I have studied well over 200 books, DVDs, lecture sets and other resources on the mind and brain.

I am only including resources on this list which I have studied all the way through. Were I to also include resources where I had picked out select chapters, or studied only part of it, this list would be several times the length! This list also does not include books, DVDs, recorded lectures, papers and articles on other, widely differing topics which I have also read. Just to put the size of this list into perspective, an academic once told me that the typical PhD candidate will have studied 40 books on his or her subject.
