This is the book I'll make sure I pick up every 6 months at the very least. The author shows us that it's not so much the tools that you use, but more so your mindset that will make you a good trader or not. Most traders beat themselves.
A gem. How much would you pay to have dinner with a legend trader? Probably a lot. But would you even know what to ask? This book not only lets you have a virtual sit down with some of the greatest legends, but the author asks all the right questions. A peek into the mindset of the greats like Richard Dennis, Ed Seykota and Bruce Kovner. This book is full of wisdom.
Ray Dalio is a legend in his own right. This book is not so much about "how to manage your trades" but more so on "how to manage yourself". Dalio points to the importance of having Principles in every aspect of your life – and most so in Trading. Break your principles and face the losses. Period.
He lost it all -- his fortune, his reputation, and his job -- in one fatal attack of excessive economic hubris. In this honest, frank analysis, Paul and Brendan Moynihan revisit the events that led to Paul's disastrous decision and examine the psychological factors behind bad financial practices in several economic sectors.
If there's only one book you had to read that encompassed trading psychology, market behaviour and technicals as well, it should be this one. I'd go as far as to call it the Bitcoin of Trading Books. It recounts the rags-to-riches and back to rags and back to riches (and so forth) story of Jesse Livermore. A must read.
Andreas M. Antonopoulos gets it. That's what I love about this guy. I can't put it any other way that sums it up: He gets it. And he'll make sure that you get it too. It's not about the price, and it's not so much about the underlying technology either. This is an invention that cannot be uninvented. Read this book.
An extension to his previous book. I recommend the audio book because this is pretty much a compilation of all his stage-talks in a more digestable format. Volume Two contains 11 of his most inspiring and thought-provoking talks , including: Introduction to Bitcoin; Blockchain vs Bullshit; and many more.
In The Truth Machine, Michael J. Casey and Paul Vigna demystify the blockchain and explain why it can restore personal control over our data, assets, and identities; grant billions of excluded people access to the global economy; and shift the balance of power to revive society’s faith in itself.
Niall Ferguson follows the money to tell the human story behind the evolution of our financial system, from its genesis in ancient Mesopotamia to the latest upheavals on what he calls Planet Finance. What's more, Ferguson reveals financial history as the essential backstory behind all history
David Graeber presents a stunning reversal of conventional wisdom: he shows that before there was money, there was debt. For more than 5,000 years, since the beginnings of the first agrarian empires, humans have used elaborate credit systems to buy and sell goods—that is, long before the invention of coins or cash.
