    Hi Bobby21231,

    I will not recommend any book here but give you an advice.
    Beware of using material in your PS if you haven't been through it properly and aren't confortable with. It's an open door to awkward questions and discussions about topics you're not sure about.
    Your PS is about YOU and what is interesting to you in the suject elected. Try and find books and refences you are already familiar with. Don't use new books so it looks good on paper, it will be counter productive.

    Hope this helps, and don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions!
