What trading books would you recommend?

I do not think that any book can actually give you what to do as a trader. It gives you information but instructions will not really work in the real world. So I prefer to read through real people's posts to be honest. Besides there are tons of resources online from articles to videos and let us not forget forums.

I'm getting rid of a number of trading related books that I've collected over the years. I have tried offering these on other threads but no interest. I'll keep them for another few weeks...say until the end of August and then they're going to charity/bin.

The specialist trading ones include Hull, Kolb and Curtis Faith (Turtle guy) and a couple of others domain-relevant.

There are also some more general subject matter of use to anyone seriously interested in the "human" challenges to trading.

There are some 13 books in all and I just want them to go to a good home and don't want money. I can't be bothered to pack up and post them so they are for collection in South West London as one lot or I'd be happy to meet up somewhere in London to hand them over.

See list below:

Futures, Options and Other Derivatives - John Hull*
Futures, Options and Other Derivatives - Solutions Manual - John Hull
Futures, Options and Swaps - Robert Kolb**
Way of the Turtle - Curtis Faith
The Black Swan - Nassim Taleb
Lecturing Birds on Flying - Pablo Triana
A Treatise on Probability - John Maynard Keynes

Super Freakonomics - Steven Levitt & Stephen Dubner

The Organised mind - Daniel Levitin
Predictably Irrational - Dan Ariely
The Perils of Perception - Bobby Duffy
The Brain that changes itself - Norman Doidge
Tricks of the Mind - Derren Brown
59 Seconds - Richard Wiseman

As you can see, the lower section is psychy/thinky/brainy type stuff. I found all of them to be interesting/useful in varying degrees. Super Freakonomics is somewhat alone but good stuff for anyone interested in the the quali/quanti debate so beloved of TA/FA rivals.... or put another way, The Art of Science. In any case it's entertaining and informative.

Condition of most is good or mint with the exception of the ones with asterisks:
* cover chewed by dog
**cover chewed by T.Rex
Both complete and pages in good condition

Its a useful list but, as it was said before, it would be better to search for existing topics and add it there so more visitors could see it.

I`d like to add some:
The Playbook - must read for daytrader
Bull, bears and millionaires - moslty about trading in general
Zurich axioms - short list of main points of trading, but some of them quite contraversal. A good thing to think about.
some good ones here

Wow, that's an impressive collection, thanks for sharing! Unfortunately I'm not from England, but I will check some of these books out for myself.

I can recommend Hull's Option Futures and other derivatives, it's great introduction book into pricing of various assets and financial modelling.

I agree with you about Steve Nison. If you are new to candlesticks then his book is the perfect one to get started with. The thing I liked best was that he told you to sometimes ignore buy and sell signals depending on where they were located in the bigger picture by looking at the entire chart that led up to the pattern. He also liked to use further confirmation sometimes rather than always relying on a single pattern.
