Edwin LeFevre's account of Larry Livermore is just as relevant today as it was 75 years ago. The book takes a look at the markets of the early 1900's and gives the reader trading strategies and philosophies that are timeless. You are able to watch Larry Livingston make and lose millions of dollars and learn from his successes and mistakes without ever having to put your own money on the line. This book has definitely changed the way I look at buying and selling stocks and commodities. Excellent book!

Whether you want to read this to understand the techniques and mentality of current or past stock trading, or whether you just want to read a fantastic novel, this book has it all. More than anything, one finds that the more things change, the more they stay the same. The subject of the book, Mr. Livingston (who is really Mr. Livermore), compares the similarities between the successful and unsuccessful speculators of the 1860s to those of the newer generations up to the 1920s. Although written in 1923, this book is clearly as relevant today as it was back then.

Jesse Livermore was a shrewd speculator who acted in the spirit of his times. A lot can be learned about his methods and concepts, many of which are still valid today, by reading ¿Reminiscences of a Stock Operator¿ by Edwin Lefevre. This is supposed to be Jesse Livermore¿s autobiography. I highly recommend it to all present day investors, traders and stock market speculators.
