In Take on the Street, Arthur Levitt—chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission for eight years under President Clinton—provides the best kind of insider information: the kind that can help honest, small investors protect themselves from the deliberately confusing ways of Wall Street.

At a time when investor confidence in Wall Street and corporate America is at an historic low, when many are seriously questioning whether or not they should continue to invest, Levitt offers the benefits of his own experience, both on Wall Street and as its chief regulator. His straight talk about the ways of stockbrokers (they are salesmen, plain and simple), corporate financial statements (the truth is often hidden), mutual fund managers (remember who they really work for), and other aspects of the business will help to arm everyone with the tools they need to protect—and enhance—their financial future.

Quotes & Awards

  • Arthur Levitt may never eat lunch on Wall Street again. Or on Capitol Hill, either. But he should be able to enjoy at least a cup of coffee on any Main Street in America if enough investors read his lively and illuminating new book....The only investment guide the average American will ever need. The New York Times
  • The small investor has never had a better friend than former SEC chairman Arthur Levitt. His goal was unwavering: To have markets that served the interests of investors, both large and small. Warren Buffett
  • A David battling the Goliaths of Wall Street...with a mighty accurate sling-shot. All his considerable business savvy and political acumen [are] on eloquent display in this book.... Henry Paulson, The Financial Times
  • A clarion call to investors to "take on" the Street...Levitt implicitly argues that knowledge is power, offering investors valuable guidance about understanding corporate financial statements, the Byzantine workings of the securities market and today's flawed system of corporate governance. Mutual fund investors also get solid advice.... John C. Bogle, The Wall Street Journal
  • Levitt's book is first rate. Read it and be saved. Liz Smith
