I'm half way through dave guppy's "Share Trading".

Easy to understand.
I've read too many books to remember, but the best (by a country mile) was the last book I read which was by Nick Radge called "Adaptive Analaysis".

I have re-read it countless times and get something new out of it every time. Maybe not as easy to follow in some areas as the more simplistic books like Guppy's or Louise Bedford but worth it's weight in Gold. :)

A must read in my opinion.;)

Good Pick Nizar - I also think one should read "The millionaire next door" right before the Peter Lynch book

I'm with Julia

Weinstein's book continues to challenge me out of the (approx) 50 or so I've bought, read, borrowed over the years.

The biggest gains I've ever made are straight from his pages....

The reviews Weinstein's book gets on Amazon are overwhelming of gushing but superficial tone. I do not regard this as a positive. Reports of his trading success indicate that his fund made about 8% pa total return over the 90's. This would have been a substantial underperformance of the broad US market over that period.

cheers,

It's not a bad book but nothing of ground breaking importance in terms of making huge profits or giving the reader something new.

It's an old book that still sells well though. I would like to see him update it.

Yes, it's the photos in it that will make you do it.

A book for the fundamental minded and biased is "Investment Fables", a must read.

Another one to avoid like the plague would be Markets, Mobs & Mayhem. Underneath the title it says How To Profit From The Madness Of Crowds.

Well blowed if I could find anything on how to profit by it. A complete mis-nomer if you want my opinion :mad:
