No Trade, Book Wish List

Couple of books I'm intending to order. For Singaporeans, I would recommend you this site at Open Trolley. I have ordered quite a number of books there, reason being: you can ask for delivery to your home at S$5.00 (round up), or you can choose to self-collect at Plaza Singapura, and the main reason is, its much CHEAPER than outside bookstore even with membership.

I signed up Times Bookstore one year back and what i found out was the price are too pricy even after membership discount. I could have found this website long ago and I would have saved a lot of money. And you can find a lot of books there. Here is my wishlist for this season:

The Poker Face of Wall Street
Brown, Aaron; Taleb, Nassim Nicholas

The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life
Schroeder, Alice

Against the Gods: The Remarkable Story of Risk
Bernstein, Peter L.

Zen and the Art of Poker: Timeless Secrets to Transform Your Game
Phillips, Larry W.
(Thanks to Attitude Trader)

Weighing the Odds in Hold'em Poker
Yao, King

Liar's Poker
Lewis, Michael

Intelligent Investor: The Classic Text on Value Investing
Graham, Benjamin

Anyone wanna buy for me?? lol.

I'd send my my copies of Liar's Poker and Zen and the Art of Poker but the shipping costs would probably exceed the price for you to buy them new in Singapore.

LOL DT, how about you ship to me personally and let's have starbucks here :D

I play cash rather than tournaments and would recommend...


Black said...

Added in my list, seems like there are 2 volumes of it.

Thanks LW for the recommendation. :)

Mmmm. I haven't read them all, but I loved reading Against the Gods and Liar's Poker (not about the card game poker). Both are really, really good books.

If you want a good poker book, I'd suggest The Tao of Poker or if you want something that will be more of a grind (haha) try The Mathematics of Poker.

PS: Can't buy any books for you, but the internet does have its share of free resources *wink**wink*

Black, i also order my books online, May be books selling over here is much expensive?

I order from Amazon, the rates are good, shipping charges averaged about USD5-6 per piece, needed to wait for 2-4 weeks the shipment arrives from US.

Black said...

Hey Anon, saw your meaningful comment reply over at your site. Indeed, these are passion and I tink we naturally work hard for passion, and when we work hard profit will take care of themselves :)

Thanks for the book recommendation! I have a shelf of trading books but not so sure about poker books so its really a help from u guys.

Black said...

Hello Ayumi, yup, retail prices are way more expensive than ordering online here.

Thanks for the info on shipping, now I know DT was trying to over-charge me. :D

DT233 said...


Actually, I found out to ship the two books to Singapore is relatively cheap, considering you live on the other side of the planet!

The books are yours if you want them....free of charge. Email me your address and I'll send 'em your way.

Black said...

Nooo... I have ordered them already after I posted this last night. I ordered 5 of the list (except Weighing the Odds of Poker).

But anyway really thanks for the offer DT, its very kind of u :) I find u again nextime hehehe....
