This review is from: 100 Minds That Made the Market (Fisher Investments Press) (Paperback)
The author states that this book is written mainly for fun, it certainly is that but it also reinforces some profound lessons for anyone who is interested in the workings of the stock market. Although a book consisting of 100 thumbnail sketches of notable Wall Street characters may not seem like a recipe for an interesting book, Mr Fisher has a warm and accessible writing style. The choice of the 100 minds that make up the book is obviously the author's own and generally are very well chosen, however the omission of Rockerfellar seems to me to be the one oversight in the book, as he casts a shadow over many of the other 100 minds.
Generally, this is a great book for anyone who wishes to be entertained and learn something of Wall Street's history at the same time.
