How I Made $2,000,000 in the Stock Market by Nicolas Darvas
"A 1950s system that made $2million in 18 months still works"
"This is a truly great book! I had been aware of the importance of having a trading system to "protect" you against the emotions of stock trading for a while now. 90% of people lose money in the market. Why? Because they try and predict stock prices and get emotionally involved. They also do not know how to read entry and exit signals.

Darvas was a dancer in the 1950s who invented a completely unique stock trading system - one which still stands tall today. His system automatically sold him out of bad markets but let his profits run with rising stocks. He gave up trying to predict the market and decided to actually follow the market and let it dictate when to make a move either way. This way of working changed the emphasis of his making large losses into his making of even larger gains. The book outlines the system he successfully used."

Market Wizards: Interviews with Top Traders by Jack D. Schwager
"One of the most fascinating books ever written about Wall Street"
"This is one of the best-selling investment titles of all time. A collection of interviews with top traders gives insights into their stories of extraordinary investment success. Learn how these pros converted financial setbacks into greater-than-ever riches."

"Interviews with such personalities as Michael Marcus - who turned a $30,000 account into $80 million and Tom Baldwin - a former meat-packing plant manager who now trades up to $2 billion worth of T-bond futures a day. Jack D. Schwager gets these top traders and others to disclose their various trading approaches and personal rules and secrets for their success."

"Jack Schwager interviews the top traders in futures, options, stocks, and commodities. The casual interview style is entertaining and easy to read but contains a wealth of strategy. Not only do you find out why these traders are so successful, you find out why the vast majority of traders are not. This book is highly recommended."

Rogue Trader by Nick Leeson
"Nick Leeson's account of the collapse of Barings is gripping reading"
This is the true story of how Leeson went from being a bank office settlement clerk to the head of trading for Barings in Singapore to bringing down one of the oldest banks in the world.

His problems escalate from a small discrepency in the accounts to him over-trading and taking lots of wild risk to try and claw back millions of pounds.

"I read this in one sitting, it's exciting, fast-moving and absolutely fascinating - highly recommended "

"The extraordinary tale of how one man brought Britain's oldest bank to the point of collapse, without any of his superiors even being aware of the situation. This is a first hand account of how Leeson got away with something which escalated completely out of control. The really shocking part is the sheer level of incompetence of almost everyone else in the organisation at the time."

A Mathematician Plays the Stock Market by John Allen Paulos
"A witty and insightful book on the stock market and the irrepressibility of our dreams of wealth"
"What makes the book delightful is his self-effacing sense of humor. I cannot remember reading another book in which a writer is as candid and funny about his own failings as an investor.

The book's running joke is the Professor's disastrous obsession with buying WorldCom stock using borrowed money before it became apparent that the company's reported earnings had more to do with wishful thinking than reality.

It is this example that makes the book also insightful for the reader because it shows how easily our emotions and instincts can lead us astray, even when we understand as much about the stock market as Professor Paulos does.

The basic point is that the stock market is a lot more complicated than anyone can hope to understand, and likely to be more volatile than almost anyone will be comfortable with. Professor Paulos provides potential remedies for both (index investing, diversifying active portfolios, and using derivatives as insurance against large risks)."
