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:

Chronicles the experiences of an American stock-market trader from his first job as a quotation boy in a Boston brokerage firm to his influential position on Wall Street in the 1920s. The author provides his observations about the markets and the minds and motivations of a typical trader.
