There are a few books that will also help hammer home your trading. They are all listed below in order of recommendation from someone with 10+ years of market experience.

The first is book is really a set of books. The Author is the venerable Mark Douglas, who has helped a lot of traders I know really clear their heads and get their trading right. It is mostly about management, but in this game that is most important. Trading In the Zone and The Disciplined Trader are two of the most important books you could ever read on your trading journey.

Next is Thinking in Bets. Its a fantastic read on thinking like a professional gambler. And while your goal is not to gamble in the market, it is important to know how to think like one. This will also help up your trade and emotional management. And as you will find out, emotional capital is almost more important the physical capital.
