how can u measure the value of a good book ?

by defining this book as "good"
by the price ?

your q. is quiet wrong.

your q. has to be :
Can I profit from a book on trading issues ?

Joe Ross stuff is pretty readable and very helpful.

Howzabout " Electronic Trading TNT 1...Gorilla Trading Stuff".

Lots of really good stuff in there, bit pricey though.

For those traders looking to design mechanical / statistical systems for futures markets, I would recommend the following:

Bob Pardo: Design, Testing, and Optimization of Trading Systems (or the newer version that just came out)
Any of the three books by Ralph Vince on money management for those interested in fixed fractional stuff.
Lars Kestner: Quantitative Trading Strategies
James Altucher: Trade Like a Hedge Fund
David Aronson: Evidence Based Technical Analysis: Applying the Scientific Method and Statistical Inference to Trading Signals
Some of Perry Kaufman's books are pretty good too.
Also for those with Tradestation, Thomas Stridsman's books (such as Trading Systems That Work) are decent intros to designing robust systems.

That's just off the top of my head. There are probably others.

Before you look at any TA books you should start with Trading in the Zone by Mark Douglas which deals with the psychological issues of trading - way more important that any TA advice.

That's true Rock....somehow i've tried to select an indicator to support my biasness. I'm planning to get that book but not sure if the "Disciplined Trader" is a better one. What do you think?

cheers,
