After my last post I received numerous emails requesting the top 10 books in my wealth library. Rather than limit myself to just trading related books, I picked out my “top 10 books of all time”.
Here they are listed in no particular order…
1. The Art Of War – Sun Tzu. (Click Here)
Despite its name, this book is not just about war – many of the strategies can be applied to love, life and entrepreneurialism.
2. Poor Charlie’s Almanack – The Wit and Wisdom of Charles T. Munger. (Click Here)
Charles T. Munger is Warren Buffet’s right hand man at Berkshire Hathaway. This book is filled with gold nuggets, you really can’t go wrong studying one of the most successful investors of all time.
3. How I Made 2 Million Dollars In The Stock Market – Nicolas Darvas (Click Here)
Many of my subscribers already know that my trading method is based on the Darvas Box method. Darvas’ first book is an entertaining read with many valuable insights.
4. Trade Your Way To Financial Freedom – Dr. Van Tharp (Click Here)
Although quite dense at times, this book had the single biggest impact on my trading career. The key to trading success is: 1. risk management 2. risk management 3. risk management!
5. Think And Grow Rich – Napoleon Hill
Cited as one of the greatest personal devolvement books of all time. Discover the law of attraction – the original ‘secret’ – and change your life forever.
6. Getting Things Done – David Allen (Click Here)
With one million things to do, you must learn to manage your time. David Allen’s book is without doubt the best book I’ve read on time management. The second best would be “The Effective Executive” by Peter Drucker.
7. Trading In A Nutshell – Stuart McPhee (Click Here)
I know I’m a little biased since Stuart is my business partner, but I truly do believe his book should be part of your personal wealth library.
8. Losing My Virginity – Richard Brandson (Click Here)
Every self respecting entrepreneur needs to read the story of Richard Brandson. I very much admire what Richard has built over the years and found loads of lessons in this book.
9. Essays of Warren Buffet: Lessons For Corporate Amercia – Warren Buffet (Click Here)
If you’re looking to create wealth, why not learn from the richest man in the world?
10. How to Win Friends and Influence People – Dale Carnegie (Click Here)
To be considered ‘interesting’ to others, you must first learn to be interested in others. This is but one of the many lessons I learned in this classic personal development book.

Your business/trading philosopher,
Ps. A few days ago Mark McRae was in Melbourne and I caught up with him for dinner. We recorded an interview (which I’ll post shortly on www.onlinetradingmastermind.com) and I even snapped a few photos. Here’s one taken inside one of my clothing stores.
