Timeless Wit and Wisdom on the Birth of Modern Wall Street

“Lefévre's lessons on this subject are state of the art-and he provides lots more fun at the same time. His stories are a delight.”
-Peter L. Bernstein, author, Capital Ideas Evolving and Against the Gods

Wall Street Stories is as relevant today as they were over a century ago. Lefévre's descriptions of investor behavior are now the standard lessons of behavioral finance.”
—Burton G. Malkiel, author, A Random Walk Down Wall Street, 9th Edition

Wall Street Stories, Edwin Lefévre's collection of masterful short stories, is a box of rare financial bon bons; I guarantee you won't be able to eat just one.”
—William Bernstein, author, The Four Pillars of Investing and Birth of Plenty

“More than a century after he first crafted these insightful parables of fear and greed, Edwin Lefévre's Wall Street Storie continues to furnish investment lessons and wisdom that are as priceless, timeless, and peerless today as they were when American capital markets first emerged onto the global stage.”
-David M. Darst, author, The Art of Asset Allocation, Second Edition

“Markets are driven by the law of supply and demand and human nature (hope, fear, and greed) which doesn't change. Wall Street Stories tells you about stock pools and human psychology on daily display.”
-William J. O'Neil, Chairman & Founder, Investor's Business Daily and www. investors.com
