Overview

Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is a novel by American author Edwin Lefèvre which is the thinly disguised biography of Jesse Livermore. 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." 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 Schwagers Market Wizards, Reminiscences was quoted as a major source of stock trading learning material for experienced and new traders by many of the traders who Schwager interviewed. 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. Along the way, Livermore learns many lessons, which he happily shares with the reader.

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.
