  1. Calm individuals generally realize more than they appear. Albeit exceptionally ordinary, their internal world is of course fronted strange and along these lines expected to be abnormal. Keep in mind the social mindfulness and feeling of reality in a tranquil individual; they are probably the most perceptive, retentive people of all.

  2. You do not include in you list “Why You Win or Lose: The Psychology of Speculation” by Fred Kelly, first published in 1930. This is probably the single best book ever written on this subject.
