Honestly, I have read so many trading eBook (free version) but I found there only basic instructions on trading! But I have found, so many important information’s though using popular Forex Forums including this one! Actually, professional traders are active on Forex forums and they share their technical and fundamental overviews on forum so willingly!

I am a lover of reading and documentation, but you are right. In the forex books you will only find the basic concepts of forex. The real secrets of the market are live in forums like this.

I'd recommend starting with a book that immerses you in the concepts. Then there are many good sites online that can give you ideas of how to apply that learning in today's markets. try these eBooks I've seen online (https://www.fm-fx.com/en/page/ebooks)

One does have to learn the basics of Forex trading from somewhere, before they move onto the more advanced material. Not to mention that there are books that do deal with said more advanced material.

I have read loads of interesting books but none of them really gave me a decent trading strategy. They all have trading 'ideas' but not a fully rounded strategy. I would stick with forums

i have read and still have tonnes of pdfs and ebooks of trading forex and trading in general still unread. in all, i really learnt a lot from babypips trading bilble. you can download it from my dropbox link, https://www.dropbox.com/s/z11f5u9qrflftj9/What_Is_Forex%5B1%5D.pdf?dl=0
sincerely, i think your psychology, money management is the most important aspect of every trader. strategy counts but not so much as these two.
also, 7 winning strategies for trading forex by grace cheng was also very helpful
enjoy being consistent with trade stats and compound interest obsessed

You can try with ‘Day trading and swing trading the currency market” by Kathy Lien and ‘Currency Trading For Dummies’ by Brian Dolan.

There is a lot of books about investing wrote by rich people and well successful. But, realize, all books about finances are about STOCK MARKET, none about forex market!

Don't exist none book called 'The intelligent speculator' or 'Learn to operate forex market'...

So, exist some classic book about trading, speculation, high risks and fast money?

I found “Foreign Exchange Forex Trading- By Ankit Gala & Jitendra Gala” is very useful for fundamentals of trading!

If there is nothing I can do a compilation about our experiences, good as bad. If we want this market to grow, the abduction of manners is to enter through the readings. The people are very sensitive to it.

I do want to suggest you to get real with that matter. I do not need to get it done, I could suggest you to go to your local library and ask here cause people here mainly looking for some online solutions and that's really it no matter how you look at it.

Well, good that you created this thread!
I think there are books describing specific techniques (like the Elliot waves, Rainbow trading etc.). Other than that, I would recommend reading articles on technical analysis in well known print publications in the financial field, like the The Journal of Finance for example.
I agree with you
