    There are no traders on the Forbes 400 Rich list, only long term investors. The the best investor of all time, Warren Buffett said that “The Intelligent Investor” by Benjamin Graham is the best book on investing ever written.

    Before you learn to trade you must learn to invest and before you invest $0.01 you ust learn what to do, how to do it and why you’re doing it.

    “The small stock trader” by Mika is also a small unique book that covers almost all the major stock market topics such as the traits of a successful small stock trader, how to choose a few simple focus stocks, market sentiment and industry, fundamental analysis, technical analysis, short selling, your edge and competition, catalysts that move the stock prices, stock trading plan, discipline, risk management and psychology. It is a simple book of about 100 small-sized pages (more like a collection of tips, perhaps 4-5 hours read), but it will answer many of your questions, so, it is a great book to start (no need to mention that about 90% of your lessons you are going to learn from your own experience/mistakes). It is also a fun-to-read book, as it is accompanied by a few jokes and observations from poker, intelligence world, relationships, happiness, Zen, and psychology.
