The Dinosaur Trader Book Club

As 2009 begins, I've decided to try and be more professional about trading. It's funny... I've traded full-time for a decade, yet I've never really defined myself as a trader. As you'll read in Wednesday's history post, I've kind of always viewed myself as somewhat "anti-Wall Street" even though I'm in the belly of the beast.

So look, I'm going to read more this year. And, in an effort to make this blog somewhat more "useful" to you, my readership, I'm going to share which books I'm reading, and when I'm reading them. That way, you too can read them and we can discuss them, in an open thread which will be posted permanently under the title of the book. Get it?


We can learn together.

Anyway, I'll announce the first book next week.  No, I don't need any of your fancy ideas...

You people don't read my posts...

"No, I don't need any of your fancy ideas..."

I will announce the first book in the DT Book Club next Tuesday. It's a "banger." However, it's not Drew Barrymore, and it's not the Wu-Tang manual...
