The position of each book in its group, first or last, is not significant. Please use this list as a guide to your own reading, but remember, the categories reflect my beliefs about the market and my preferences for trading the market.

If you have a comment you want to make about a book, contact us and we will add it immediately. Use the EDIT and FIND menu on your browser to search for book titles on this page. We do not sell any books other than those written by Daryl Guppy.
