Mike -

Dr. Steenbarger is very well regarded, I haven't read his books but I've read some of his blogs and I like him. I plan on reading his books.

I totally quit reading any books on any trading method. It seems they all either don't work or require expensive software (and probably still don't work!). So I'm now focusing on the money management and psychology part.

I just posted about a blog I'm reading, I originally put it here but since this is a book thread I thought I'd create a new topic. I'm hoping others will read it and want to discuss it. So far, from what I've read, it's far better than other trading psychology books that I've seen.

I took a look at this blog: it looks interesting.

I don't find trader books very helpful right now either. I am at a different place in my knowledge base than you are, clearly, tho. I find I'm battling discipline, fear and emotion more than anything. I trade very successfully in SIM mode, but the moment I switch over, it's a new ballgame. Getting better, but maybe this blog will help. thanks.

Also plan to check out WH's emotional clearing thread... thanks to him, too.
