Overview

First published in 1923, Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is the fictionalized biography of Jesse Livermore, one of the greatest speculators who ever lived. Now, more than 80 years later, it 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. They have also discovered that its trading advice and keen analyses of market price movements ring as true today as in 1923.

Jesse Livermore won and lost tens of millions of dollars playing the stock and commodities markets during the early 1900s. So potent a market force was he in his day that, in 1929, he was widely believed to be the man responsible for causing the Crash.

Originally reviewed in The New York Times as a nonfiction book, Reminiscences of a Stock Operator vividly recounts Livermore’s mastery of the markets from the age of 14. Always good at figures, he learns, early on, that he can predict which way the numbers will go. Starting out with an investment of five dollars, he amasses a fortune by his early twenties and establishes himself as a major player on the Street. Bullish in bear markets, and bearish among bulls, he claims that only suckers gamble on the market. The trick, he advises, is to protect yourself by balancing your investments, and selling big on the way down. Livermore goes broke three times, but he comes back each time feeling richer for the learning experience.

Offering profound insights into the motivations, attitudes, and feelings shared by every investor, Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is a timeless instructional tale that will enrich the lives – and the portfolios – of today’s traders as it has those of generations past.

There many misspelling in this issue and in more than one chapter there missing paragraphs. Considering that Reminiscences of a Stock Operator has been looked to as an instructional book, the missing paragraphs in this book version greatly reduce it's value. I am not pleased with this issue.

An interesting autobiography of a day trader. He was obviously addicted to gambling and beliveved he saw patterns in his big profits and loses. They make 1-800 hotlines nowadays for those with his gambling delusions, and behavorialists have printed many books about the topic. This is a good case study to read.

As other reviewers said, this is illegible. They should remove this version from the store. It doesn't warrant any stars, but that isn't an option.

Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is a great book for anyone interested in the stock market. It does not matter that the book was written about the market in the 20's--it matters that the lessons are timeless. It is a fun and easy to read book that tells you about bull and bear markets and about all the characters that trade in these.
