Books, resources and links

While there are countless travel books available, most of these focus on a region or destination.  At Inward Traveler the goal is to help you with the why of travel.  The books included, my selections and perhaps yours in the future, express something about the inward experience or personal psychology of travel.  Here are a few of the books I've read to get you started.  More will be added over time.
