2019 Reprint of 1923 Edition. First published in 1923, Reminiscences is a fictionalized account of the life of the securities trader Jesse Livermore. Despite the book's age, it continues to offer insights into the art of trading and speculation. In Jack Schwager's Market Wizards, many of the traders interviewed considered Reminiscences a major source of stock trading information for both experienced and new traders. The book tells the story of Livermore's progression from day trading in the then so-called "New England bucket shops," to market speculator, market maker, and market manipulator, and finally to Wall Street where he made and lost his fortune several times over. Along the way, Livermore learns many lessons, which he happily shares with the reader. The Wall Street Journal described the book as a "classic", it was ranked #15 on Fortune's 75 The Smartest Books We Know, and Alan Greenspan said it is "a font of investing wisdom."
