A Listmania! list by A P (VA United States)
The list author says: "I've been actively trading options for three years, and stocks for around ten. These books have been an immense help to me in improving my trading."
Enhancing Trader Performance: Proven Strategies From the Cutting Edge of Trading Psychology
1.  Enhancing Trader Performance: Proven Strategies From the Cutting Edge of Trading Psychology by Brett N. Steenbarger
The list author says:
  "Probably the best single book I've read about the art of trading.  If you want to know why 80-90% of traders loser money or fail at trading, read this book.  I read the Kindle version."

The Daily Trading Coach: 101 Lessons for Becoming Your Own Trading Psychologist
2.  The Daily Trading Coach: 101 Lessons for Becoming Your Own Trading Psychologist by Brett N. Steenbarger
The list author says:
  "Another great book by Brett Steenbarger.  The content is fairly similar to that of Enhancing Trader Performance, but it's broken down into smaller "lessons" on how to essentially become your own trading coach."
$32.17   Used & New from: $23.22

The Bible of Options Strategies: The Definitive Guide for Practical Trading Strategies
3.  The Bible of Options Strategies: The Definitive Guide for Practical Trading Strategies by Guy Cohen
The list author says:
  "A great encyclopedia/reference material for beginning options traders, with clear explanations on how to select, enter and exit options positions, along with a full explanation of how the position works.  Positions are categorized according to how risky they are, as well as whether it is a bullish, bearish, or market-neutral position."

4.  Trading Options at Expiration: Strategies and Models for Winning the Endgame by Jeffrey Augen

The Volatility Edge in Options Trading: New Technical Strategies for Investing in Unstable Markets
5.  The Volatility Edge in Options Trading: New Technical Strategies for Investing in Unstable Markets by Jeffrey Augen
The list author says:
  "Much of the content of this book will be over the head of anyone who doesn't have a good understanding of the greeks and how options work.  But if you want a very thorough understanding of how options and the greeks work, read this book.  However, duplicating most of the trades in the book requires an account over $25,000 in your trading account in order to comply with daytrading rules."

Trading in the Zone: Master the Market with Confidence, Discipline and a Winning Attitude
6.  Trading in the Zone: Master the Market with Confidence, Discipline and a Winning Attitude by Mark Douglas
The list author says:
  "A classic, and a must for anyone who wants to learn how to trade more profitably and consistently.  Read this and you'll see why 90% (or more) of success in trading is mental.  I read the Kindle version."

Reminiscences of a Stock Operator
7.  Reminiscences of a Stock Operator by Edwin Lefevre
The list author says:
  "Another classic on the art of trading.  Read this and you'll see how little has changed in the markets since this book was written in 1923.  You'll also see why folks who claim "this time it's different" in terms of markets are always wrong."
