Also, I heard good things about"Rocket science for traders" from Ehler.

Do you know it?

There is a more recent update to the Ehler book which is "Cybernetic analysis for stocks and futures".

Amazon.com: Cybernetic Analysis for Stocks and Futures: Cutting-Edge DSP Technology to Improve Your Trading (Wiley Trading) (9780471463078): John F. Ehlers: Books

You can find out more on his MESA site

I recommend Winning spread betting strategies: How to make money in the medium term in up, down and sideways markets: Trading Techniques for Active Investors by Malcolm Pryor, a total no-nonsense logical set of strategies for various types of market. It is presented in an almost clinical fashion, which is how trading should be approached. If you like adrenaline rushes, don't attempt trading as a career....

"If try before you buy" is your style, then there are some ways of checking out some of the content in trading books on the web for free. These include:
1. google books (limited previews available on some books)
2. Scribd Scribd sometimes includes free e-books.

For Chart Pattern discussions, there are books by Thomas Bulkowski that attempt to provide readers with lots of backtesting on patterns. He also operates a free research web site http://thepatternsite.com/

Re: Which books should a beginner read?

I am still a beginner and I have found these books most helpful:
Technical Analysis: The Complete Resource for Financial Market Technicians by Charles D. Kirkpatrick II CMT and Julie R. Dahlquist
The Three Skills of Top Trading: Behavioral Systems Building, Pattern Recognition, and Mental State Management by Hank Pruden

Best of luck.
