I am a member of IWA (hence, the post's title).
David Burns sent these around via one of my lists. You can read a description on each book's WWW site. Some of these may be available as free downloads - mainly those published by IWA and governmental agencies. For example, I found (4) as a freebie by Googling its title.
Comments on the books are not mine; I have not read any of them.

“I finished my first book seventy-six years ago. I offered it to every publisher on the English-speaking earth I had ever heard of. Their refusals were unanimous: and it did not get into print until, fifty years later; publishers would publish anything that had my name on it.” ― George Bernard Shaw
