Mike McClure’s recommended reading list for success in DFS, Sports Betting and Life. These books aren’t all directly related to Sports Betting or DFS, but many of the principles can be applied to speculation in any market. Feel free to send YOUR book recommendations to @Mike5754 on Twitter. I find that I learn more from most of these in audiobook form, especially the Taleb books.

Fantasy Baseball for Smart People: How to Use Math and Psychology to Win at DFS

DFS Books - Using math and psychology to win at DFS.
I’m listing this book first because I know many of you want to learn more about DFS and probably don’t have the desire to read thousands of pages. Jonathan Bales has done a great job incorporating many of the most important topics from some of the books on this list. If you read one book on DFS/Sports betting it should be this book.

After you’ve read Fantasy Baseball For Smart People you should dive into Nassim Nicholas Taleb books as they are the most useful DFS books.
