I'm often asked to list my favourite, most influential trading books. Over the last 26 years I've read a LOT of trading books, good and bad. So before we go any further let's think...what's in a trading book? Probably nothing unless you make it your own. For example, I have known Peter for 15 years. He's a doctor - a specialist actually, so he must be damn smart. He loves reading trading books. He has hundreds of them. Whenever a new trading book is released, wham!, he's ordered it and read it. He then stows it on a huge bookshelf bulging with trading books. Like little trophies.
