    Are you a Goldman Sachs aspirant and want to learn about its corporate culture, its thinking? What's better than to see the literature that inspires and shapes their rank and file over the years? Goldman Sachs compiles a list of books written by many of its own as well as from the most influential authors in finance.

    This list is among the most comprehensive finance reading lists we've seen . There are definitely many lesser known literature gems among this list.


    Written by Current or Former Goldman Sachs Employees
    Industry Background and Flavor
    The following popular works are, of course, exaggerated depictions of the darker side of the industry. However, they do provide some of the flavor of life on "The Street."
    Broad Industry History
    Analytical and Reference
    FICC & Equities
    Written About, By or For Money Managers and Traders

    I'm impressed myself. There are plenty of good books in the Industry Background reading that I wouldn't have heard of without this list.
    Looks like I'm going to have to update the Quantnet Master reading list

    I attached a PDF file that I have embed links to the books so people don't have to search for it on Amazon. Feel free to print it or distribute on your website.

    Thank, Andy and Jim!

    I have to say, Jim's list is more practical and less intimidating than GS's.

    I have a question: is it important to read a lot of books on trading for a quant?
