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."
