Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is the fictionalized biography of Jesse Livermore, one of the greatest speculators ever. The timeless insights found within these pages have inspired countless generations of investors and made this book one of the foremost investment classics of all time. And although most modern–day investors and traders are familiar with this investment classic, many do not know that Reminiscences of a Stock Operator first appeared in the 1920s as a series of articles and illustrations in The Saturday Evening Post. Now, for the first time ever, this beloved classic is available in its original, illustrated format. In 1922, Edwin Lefèvre began publishing his fictionalized account of Livermore’s exploits in a series of articles for The Saturday Evening Post, which appeared under the title "Reminiscences of a Stock Operator." Now, Reminiscences of a Stock Operator Illustrated Edition combines those memorable illustrations with Lefèvre’s timeless investment advice to recreate the look, feel, and message that was first published more than eighty years ago. Jesse Livermore won and lost tens of millions of dollars playing the stock and commodities markets during the early 1900s, at one point making ten million dollars in one month of trading–an astronomical sum for this time. His ideas and keen analyses of market price movements are as true today as they were when he first implemented them. Offering profound insights into the motivations, attitudes, and feelings shared by every investor, Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is among the most compelling and enduring pieces ever written on trading in the markets–and this new illustrated edition brings this story to life like never before. Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is a timeless tale that will enrich the lives–and portfolios–of today’s traders as it has done for generations in the past. This handsome coffee–table book combines for the first time in a single source, beautifully crafted reproductions of the original "Reminiscences of a Stock Operator" articles and artwork as they were initially found in The Saturday Evening Post. Take the time to study both the vintage art and proven trading wisdom of this impressive illustrated edition, and you’ll discover more about the markets and yourself. In addition to The Saturday Evening Post illustrations, this new version contains commentary from renowned financial historian Charles Geisst. Geisst explains the historic context of each chapter of Reminiscences, providing insight into the financial markets and speculative culture of this bygone era. Readers will learn how bucket shops operated, the exploits of other big traders, and how Jesse Livermore figured in the controversies of the day. The result is a far richer, more enlightening reading experience.

It's totally surprising to see nothing has changed in the markets since 100 years. The whole mechanism, pscychology and theatre is the same onyl players change. The book is a large size hard cover. So be careful you can only read it at home.

This will take time, to let the messages and lessons resonate will take longer because the reality is, we are all addicted to the dream.
Having taken the time, my intention is to get ahead and quit to somewhere with plenty of sun and absolutely no Internet (or bucket shops)
You will be reading for the same reason as myself - to take in a lesson from a renowned trading genius. Read it - the lesson is the moral a moral is difficult to find amongst us men of very few who play the ultimate game of capitalist invent. It ain't half fun though!

Riveting and inspiring. I'd recommend this book to any experienced investor, trader or speculator.

It draws you in from the first page, holds you throughout, and afterwards leaves you determined to change a few things about your own activities. Enduring and full of value.
