The market wizards books are ok I found there where 3 or 4 traders interviewed in those books who I immediately emphaphised with and gave me the confidence I was thinking along the right lines

Reminiscences of a stock operator is a must read. In fact I think I'll read it again today.

I like talebs books, 99% probably won't but' his books where probably the most inspiring for me. Drunkards Walk is another reasonable read for apprentice "******s"

Personally - duncan bannatyne - anyone can do it.
Although got pretty much SFA to do with trading...
Although of all the dragons, Richard Farleighs is the only one
directly related to trading.

I'd also say wizards books as well.
Thin on detail and specifics, yes, but then no book is going to
tell you exactly how to trade.
They are more a broad outline demonstrating common underlying principles
along with the different approach of each trader featured.

Market Wizards and Reminiscences of a Stock Operator have already been mentioned a couple of times and rightly so. Another one I liked was Fooled by Randomness. It doesn't teach trading techniques per se, but it highlighted for me the importance of thinking in terms of probabilities.

Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques by Steve Nisson was another one I found helpful back in the day. Nowaways, you can find most of that info on the web, but Nisson was the original guy to bring it to the west, and I think he has a very clear way of explaining things.

Also, it's not a book, but I think the essays of Ray Dalio on his hedge fund's website provide a great intro for someone getting into trading.

It's probably the most accessible of Talebs books, I can't recommend it highly enough.

Reminiscences of a stock operator (the original illustrated edition is best)

How to trade in stocks

The art of contrary thinking

Fooled by randomness (Black Swan is good too)

Antifragile

Popular delusions and the madness of crowds


The first four were the most influential...I have a copy of reminiscences perpetually open on my laptop.

Trading in the zone. All good and teaches import lessons about the mentality of sucessfull traders.

But as a read its rather dull.

"Reminiscences of a Stock Operator" is one of the best books that has ever been written on stock trading. The Market Wizards trilogy is good - particularly the last one "Stock Market Wizards" which focuses on stock traders in particular. For some reason not as much mention is ever made of this as the first two.
