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.

From the Back Cover

"After 20 years and many re–reads, Reminiscences is still one of my all–time favorites."

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 book was actually given to me by an associate of Bill O'Neil as an encouragement to understand the investing philosophy of Bill who, while being a famous market wizard himself, was in turn also deeply influenced by Jesse Livermore, the disguised hero of the book.

Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is a fictionalised version of the life of Jesse Livermore, one of the greatest speculators ever, where the original text first appeared in the 1920's as a series of articles and illustrations in the Saturday Evening Post, and while Livermore had won and lost tens of millions of dollars playing the stock and commodities markets, his ideas about the market are as true today as they were more than 80 years ago, making Reminiscences of a Stock Operator a timeless classic that enriches today's traders as it has done for generations in the past.

For the first time ever, this classic is reprinted in its original, illustrated format in the Saturday Evening Post, and in addition to that, this new version contains commentary from renowned financial historian Charles Geisst, who explains the historic context of each chapter of Reminiscences, providing insight into the financial markets and speculative culture of this bygone era, providing a richer, more enlightening reading experience.

By the way, together with this book, I was also given Bill's notes on Livermore's trades in the book, which were expressed in the form of stock charts with quotes and annotations written over them, and it's very helpful in getting me to understand the book, but to the disappointment of the rest of you, Bill's notes are only private distributed to people he knows, so I consider myself really lucky to have got a copy.

I bought this edition a few years ago and it is lovely to read.
As another reviewer said it is quite large and being a hard back it can be little uncomfortable laid on you knee.
Having said that it's a joy to look through, the pictures capture the feelings of the market at the time (and the feelings now).
The story itself is very interesting and can be seen as a window into the past but it is more than that, it is filled with information and insights into what is essentially the same market.
The players change but the game remains the same.
It's a book that every trader or stock market aficionado should have a copy of.

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!

Good book with valuable lessons that I've read many times. From reading this book you will not only realise the ups and downs of this trader in particular but also the lessons he learnt through out his journey. Every chapter provides fantasic learning lessons and even if you are not interested in trading then this is still a good read as there is almost a sense of drama. For those wanting to become a trader you have to read this before doing anything...it will open your eyes and mind.
