Like we said in the How To: section, all our information is based of science, research, and good old experience. We want to be as transparent as possible so we have compiled a list of sources (almost all of them are academic, peer-reviewed sources) that we used to write and explain our product. Most of these articles are available on databases like The Purdue Libraries or Google Scholar. All the books are available on Amazon.
