Throughout It’s Your World, I suggest different websites you can visit if you want to learn more about a particular challenge or a particular solution addressed in the book. I thought it might be helpful to have all of them listed in one place, which is why I compiled this list, grouping together websites by chapter. While conducting research for It’s Your World, I drew on many more resources than are listed in the book, and I include some, though not all, of those here too. If there are sites you find particularly useful when thinking about the topics I talk about in the book, please let me know and I’ll consider adding them to the list of resources. Thank you in advance for any suggestions!
