(More) Hot Topics: Associates’ Summer Reading List

A handful of TD Ameritrade associates tell us what books they’ll devour at the beach.

We kicked off our summer reading list by inviting the Trader Team to recommend a book focused on investing education and one for pure pleasure. Here, the rest of the group shares their picks, including familiar favorites. We also asked their preference between cracking a spine or powering up a tablet.


Victor Jones

Rigged: The True Story of an Ivy League Kid Who Changed the World of Oil…

“I was hooked on charting from there and I still feel it is one of the most comprehensive resources available.” “The book (and the kid) have been described as short, funny, and mean.”

“The Bible for options traders — I tucked in each night with this for about a year when I got on to the CBOE.” “The book is an easy read and what got me excited about the industry.”

JJ Kinahan
