  1. I want to read some more trading books, Specifically related to Wall Street trading in the environment there-

    What books do you recommend?
  2. Michael lewis " liers poker" was good. Another good one was "guido's in the boilerroom" I forgot who wrote that though and not sure of the title but it was good.
  3. These are (really) oldies but goodies, so they might not be exactly what you're looking for if you're after something more contemporary, but I think everyone in the market should read them once:

    The Wall Street Jungle and the The Wall Street Gang, both by Richard Ney.

    The numbers have changed, but the environment they describe has stayed remarkably similar.

    Street Freak, by Jared Dillian. The guy succeeded at Lehman Brothers, even though he had a bona fide mental disorder (diagnosed after the fact).

    Or maybe he succeeded BECAUSE he had a mental disorder?

    The Wolf of Wall Street.

    DiCapro and Scorsese are releasing a movie this year. Read the book before the movie comes out.

    Other great reads,
    Marty Schwartz's book, Pit Bull.
    Fiasco, bad ass derivatives trader "ripping" their clients
