    I just finished reading Options Volatility & Pricing and wanted to find out what other books are recommended by seasoned traders.

    Interestingly, I just read today a book by Carol Alexander called Market Models. It has an excellent discussion of volatility in it along with a bunch of models to estimate it. I was seriously impressed as she adresses some issues for options traders. It may not be what you're looking for though as it isn't a trading book.

    Other than that google for an online copy of Coulda, Shoulda , Woulda by Cottle. His original one was called Options Pereception/Deception, but it isn't available.

    If you just read Natenberg once (or five times) I would suggest reading it about a dozen more times.
  4. by Baird is VERY GOOD - very practical (like the books by Cottle) and ALL the books by Larry McMillan should be studied.

    Agreed, you need to read these books multiple times and the Baird book is pretty good too

    Thanks guys for your input. I will be ordering these books on amazon.
  7. Natenberg, Baird and Cottle. Baird focuses on switch-risk and greek modality.

    I reread some of the Baird book in the last few days since it was mentioned here. There are definitely some good things discussed there in, although it could go a littel more in depth.
