I have already read Market Wizards and Trading in the Zone, which I loved both of those books very much. Can anyone suggest anything else?

Also, what kind of premium paid education have you had experience with, and what was your experience with it? Looking to take some classes and education

Take a look at this book at Amazon:
The Black Book of Forex Trading

I believe it's simple yet powerful, specially for beginners

The Hour between Dog and Wolf - written by a trader turned neuroscientist analyses the physiological and, consequently, mental effects of trading.
Trading in a Nutshell is a nice book that helps to keep it simple when you try to get overcomplicated.
Personally I think if someone is charging for your 'education' then they personally aren't making money trading so why would you trust them?

Well, I don't see much difference in one charging for a book they wrote or charging for educational videos and/or training they designed. I have definitely found some shady 'teachers' in this industry, but I have also seen some really good ones.
Teaching is a obvious route for those who are capable of teaching. Trading is hard work, takes time and effort, whereas teaching someone your 20+ years of experience, can be a bit less time consuming and extremely rewarding, assuming there is at least a thousand students or so.
As long as the teacher is transparent enough, doesn't claim to win 100% or 90% of the time,etc,... than maybe they are offering something in honesty , because they know it is valuable.
Thank you for the book titles, I will definitely check them out .

Any book by Anna Couling - Especially A 3 Dimensional Approach to Forex Trading.

I believe it is is on a special price for Kindle on Amazon. $5.89.

It takes you through the important relationships of Bonds, Commodities, Stocks and Indices with what you should consider in your analysis of the markets.

I did a speed read first to get the feel and then re-read it.

Totally absorbing.

Anna also does a book called 'Forex for Beginners'.

Anna herself contributes articles to various websites like FXStreet and also trades 'live' so she has a solid reputation.

If you have a Kindle there are many books on Forex of which you can try a sample to get the feel.

There is though I warn some trash where the writing is disjointed however by sampling you can weed them out.

Try the classic Edwin Lefevre's - Reminiscences of A Stock Operator. It was Jesse Livermore's biography.

Understanding Price Action
Practical Analysis of the 5-Minute Time Frame
Bob Volman

This is probably the only book you need to read if you want to be a trader.

Good luck! ;)
