This is a collection of genuine books suitable for modern setting (or the post-apocalyptic aftermath of a modern setting) that can be used to flesh out a bookshelf, so that a GameMaster can give examples of what books can be found if players ask. The books cover a range of subjects broadly related to business, investment and finance.
Each book gives the name, author(s), publication date and some brief details on its contents. The books range in publication dates from the beginning of the 20th century to the 21st, with the majority being at the latter end of the 20th century and later.
