Operating on the premise that the principles of trading really have not changed that much through the decades, the author seeks to prove this by exploring the attitudes and actions of a number of traders have followed through the years. Some of the individuals covered in this book include Bruce Kovner, Paul Tudor Jones, and Jim Rogers. These three individuals run some of the largest hedge funds, and readers will gain a great deal of insight through the interviews that are captured by the author of this book.

I personally found this book to be one of my favorites that I still go back and read from time to time. The information you gain from the insight of mega-successful traders is priceless.

Reminiscences of a Stock Operator by Edwin Lefevre

This classic trading book dates all the way back to 1923, an era before the Great Depression. How did people money in the markets during this time? Readers will discover timeless principles that are still just as applicable today as they were back then.

This one book will educate readers about stock markets in a way that experience alone could never hope to replicate. The book itself is well written and easy to understand. Personal opinions are kept out of the writing, as the author focus on the act of trading and nothing more. While technology might have changed since this book was first published, the principles of speculative trading have not.
