Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Critical Praise.... "In my interviews with over 30 of the best traders of our time, there were some questions that I raised in each conversation. One of these was: Are there any books that you found particularly valuable and would recommend to aspiring traders? By far, the most frequent response was Reminiscences of a Stock Operator-a book that was over 70 years old!" -from the Foreword by Jack Schwager Author of Market Wizards and The New Market Wizards "Although Reminiscences...was first published some 70 years ago, its take on crowd psychology and market timing is as timely as last summer's frenzy on the foreign exchange markets." -Worth magazine "The most entertaining book written on investing is Reminiscences of a Stock Operator, by Edwin Lefevre, first published in 1923." -The Seattle Times "The best book I've read is Reminiscences of a Stock Operator. I keep a supply for people who come to work for me." -Martin Zweig "After 20 years and many re-reads, Reminiscences is still one of my all-time favorites." -Kenneth L. Fisher Forbes First published in 1923, Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is the fictionalized biography of Jesse Livermore, one of the greatest speculators ever. Reminiscences remains the most widely read, highly recommended investment book ever written. Generations of investors have found that it has more to teach them about themselves and other investors than years of experience in the market. This is a timeless tale that will enrich the lives-and portfolios-of today's investors as it has those of generations past.

Synopsis:

Jesse Livermore won and lost tens of millions of dollars playing the stock and commodities markets during the early 1900s--at one point making the then astronomical amount of ten million dollars in just one month of trading. So potent a market force was he in his day that Livermore was widely believed to be the man responsible for causing the Crash of 1929. Reminiscences of a Stock Operator--the fictionalized biography of one of the greatest speculators who ever lived--vividly recounts Livermore's mastery of the markets from age fourteen. Now, more than 80 years later, Reminiscences remains one of the most widely read, highly recommended investment books ever written. Offering profound insights into the motivations, attitudes, and feelings shared by every investor, Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is a timeless investment classic that will enrich the lives--and portfolios--of today's traders.
