Here’s the next installment of my list ofÂ gift recommendations for traders.
Paul Erdman is perhaps the premier author of financial markets fiction. He has published a quite a few excellent books. They combine very entertaining and enjoyable reads with incredible market insight. In fact, his stories have, over the years, been viewed as predictive of developments that eventually came to pass.
Here are some of Erdman’s titles:
- The Set-up
- The Swiss Account
- The Palace
- Zero Coupon
- The Billion Dollar Sure Thing
- The Last Days of America
Erdman, though, does not restrict himself to only writing fiction, though. He has authored a great many articles on the market and global finance, and some books as well. His most recent is The Great Unravelling, a book he co-authored with Pal Krugman. It is a discussion of the markets of the late 1990s in to the early part of the 2000s.
I have personally read and thoroughly enjoyed a handful of Erdman’s fiction books (Zero Coupon was my first, and it hooked me!) and one of his non-fiction works. Several others are on my own personal wish list.
