    Just wondering if anyone has read a really interesting book lately?

    It doesn't have to do with trading directly per se. Personally, I read Blink and Freakanomics recently. Both were great and I recommend them. They aren't about trading but you may find them useful because they contain a lot of great new ideas and encourage one to think in a different way.

    I recommend:

    Smartest Guys in the Room: The Amazing Rise and Scandalous Fall of Enron

    Great inside story on what really happened at enron.

    Shutter Island - Dennis Lehane

    Best mystery/thriller I've ever read, bar none. It's so good I can't tell you why it's so good, anything I say would give away the plot. Don't read any online reviews, they'll contain spoilers. Just check it out from your local library or buy it for a buck on Amazon.

  5. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (Vintage Contemporaries)
    by Mark Haddon

    A very interesting book.
  6. agree--- just finished last night by tiki torch , freakonomics is excellent!

    my favorite pop culture type book remains techgnosis by eric davis. highly reccomend it if you are looking to gain a complete, historic understanding of tech/culture.
