Well clearly some are better than others, but just a few hours of researching the books on amazon will give you a better feel. Also, you can immediately eliminate some of the books if you have a preference for fixed income, derivatives, equity, etc. My goal was to gain an inter-connected view of the markets so I thought it made sense to read about everything.

Yes I'm sure half the Amazon forest must be in his library.

Tiger on a serious note as research would you say your trading is better for all your reading?

Sounds a silly question but if you could perhaps summarise three sentences on what you gained from your extensive reading it would be educational for me.
