Technical Analysis Reading List

I've been looking for an authoritative reading list for technical analysis and found one after wandering into Market Technicians Association, Inc. through an analyst's credentials. MTA is a non-profit organization whose stated mission is to "Educate the public and the investment community to the value and universality of technical analysis."

They have a rigorous, self-study certification program for technical analysis. To get certified, you need to pass three levels of testing (the final is an essay format) based on material you learn from studying the following books:

Level 1 (100 hours of studying)
Level 2 (140 hours)
Level 3 (160 hours)
That's a total of about 5400 pages of reading. To finish in 400 hours, it's about 4-5 minutes of study per page.
