Paul encourages people to obtain and read the three fundamental books that do represent the last word on Authentic Japanese Reiki, and the Jikiden School of Reiki. These are:

The Hayashi Reiki Manual, by Tadao Yamaguchi and Frank Arjava Petter; Light on the Origins of Reiki, by Tadao Yamaguchi; and This Is Reiki, by Frank Arjava Petter Yamaguchi and Petter are the number one and number two officers, respectively, of the Jikiden School of Reiki, that is headquartered in Kyoto, Japan (despite Petter, a native German, now living on the island of Lesbos, in Greece).For an interesting and somewhat different perspective on Reiki and its origins, Paul encourages people to obtain and read the somewhat-more-difficult-to-obtain 2006 book by Dave King called O-Sensei.
