Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jesus Delgado | 10/26/2016

    " Excellent book. Really navigates through the mental cycles of a trader. You will learn something every time you finish it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clare | 2/13/2014

    " This book should be obligatory reading for anyone who works in financial markets. The rationale behind anti bucket shop legislation, and its application to modern financial instruments, becomes clear as you learn how these establishments functioned. From a behavioural finance perspective this is also a fascinating and very early look at the pitfalls of investing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aaron Shaw | 2/7/2014

    " Pretty good book about the life of Jesse Livermore. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kent Kyker | 2/6/2014

    " It may be hard to read if you don't understand how the stock markets worked back then, but it is a very good book, if your into history, economics, etc. Its probably the only fictional novel based on investing that stood the test of time. One of my favorite books ever! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Davis | 2/4/2014

    " Though written over 70 years ago, it applies today just as it did in the 1930s. This is because history and human behavior tends to repeat itself irregardless of mistakes made in the past. For those planning to trade or invest in stocks or commodities, this is an essential book to help level the playing field. You get an understanding of the mentality behind some of the players in the markets. No doubt, I will read it again and study it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason Field | 1/27/2014

    " Really enjoyable read that takes you back to where it all began but also makes you wonder whether all that much has changed in the mean time? Highly entertaining. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rafael de Cameron | 1/21/2014

    " Captures the essence of day trading that, although was written about a character before the great depression, is timeless in dealing with human nature. Though plotless, love the pace and the narrative. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erik Johnson | 12/30/2013

    " Loved this book. Few trading books read like a fantasy novel. Lots of great advice placed sporadically throughout the book. "

    " A must read for anyone interested in the art of day trading. "

    " This book is a must in every trader's library. I found the book hard to put down after I read through the first chapter. It is written in an easy yet fascinating style in which a trader can relate to in today's market conditions. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Min | 11/8/2013

    " my vague recollection of this book for some reason involves his fishing expeditions, rather than his dealings with the tape. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamie Stock | 10/31/2013

    " Really interesting book. I read it few months back and it was really informative. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sean Maguire | 10/10/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian Zheng | 2/26/2013

    " Widely regarded as THE best book ever written about trading by most high profile traders. The book is a bio of Jessie Livermore, a legend trader in early 20th century. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Randy | 10/15/2011

    " Interesting period piece alone, not to mention the insights into market mechanics/corruption of the early markets. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shirleynault | 1/22/2011

    " I know it is strange but this is one of my favorite books. It is a very easy read. It was written in the early 1900's but I think that is what fascinates me, is how much things are still the same. Emotions don't seem to change "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian | 4/2/2010

    " Very interesting how the mind of a speculator works. This book has nothing to do with investing -- and everything to do with gambling. If you've ever watched "Jim Cramer's Mad Money" this is the pre-1920 version of the same guy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan | 2/6/2010

    " GREATEST EDUCATION ABOUT HUMAN NATURE I HAVE HAD! This book was written by Jesse Livermore under the pen name Edwin Lefevre. I have a first edition hardcover copywrite 1923. He dedicated the book to Jesse Livermore! HA! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 1/1/2008

    " Great book for someone who wants to get excited about the financial markets. As far as applying its teachings to today's markets... not so much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly Reed | 7/9/2007

    " For anyone interested in the dynamics of trading and the history of the markets this is a fantastic book. The similarities between what is happening now and what happened in the early 1900's is uncanny. "
