Description of Reminiscences of a Stock Operator"Although Reminiscences ...was first published some seventy years ago, its take on crowd psychology and market timing is as timely at 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 Lefèvre, first published in 1923." — The Seattle Times "After twenty years and many re–reads, Reminiscences is still one of my all–time favorites." —Kenneth L. Fisher, Forbes "A must–read classic for all investors, whether brand–new or experienced." —William O′Neil, founder and Chairman, Investor′s Business Daily "Whilst stock market tomes have come and gone, this remains popular and in print eighty years on." — GQ magazine First published in 1923, Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is the most widely read, highly recommended investment book ever. Generations of readers have found that it has more to teach them about markets and people than years of experience. This is a timeless tale that will enrich your life—and your portfolio.
Financial Guru ReviewsWidely regarded as a timeless investment classic, this book chronicles the trading exploits of Jesse Livermore during the early 1900s. Although Mr. Livermore was trading more than a hundred years ago there are many insights to be gleaned from his activities back then that are just as applicable to today’s markets.
Generally when top investors are interviewed and asked to recommend their favoured investment books, this title appears more than any other. It represents the fictionalised biography of Jesse Livermore, one of the most famous and colourful market speculators of all time. This book contains many words of market wisdom, even if Livermore himself failed to follow them all the time.
Just for fun but it's relevant.
Another book which I found just in time. It changed my whole perspective of investing. It is a fictionalized account of the life of Jesse L. Livermore, the famous speculator, to whom it is dedicated. It shows how one must allow oneself to be inspired by the market rather than impose one's own views upon it.
