I really didn't know what to expect with this book. The events take place a century ago. Yet, the story and the advice are spot on. I highly recommend this for anyone interested in trading. Someone else mentioned that the first half of the book is more interesting than the second. That was my experience as well. However, the entire book is worth listening to.
Great discipline and instruction on how to be a successful trader. This book is just as relevant today as it was when it was published. It's a classic and will probably remain popular for some time to come.
Simply excellent, required reading for any trader, and even more valuable I believe for traders who have some experience under their belt. As for the reader, I thought he was fantastic, just an excellent purchase.
1st half is more interesting than 2nd half. Great market and trading insights. The subject that the book is based on tells stories of investments over his lifetime with great lessons learned. It's hard to follow at times because the trading terminology and just because it's hard to focus on the road and concentrate. A sure classic for anyone with experience trading stocks.
This is an interesting historical account of the early days of stock trading and is fun to listen to. The author identifies many of the emotional hurdles one must overcome with trading--many of which still occur today. I was saddened by the ending.
Great book. No wonder best seller for last century.
Author explains stock manipulations, importance of reading Tape, journey of loosing millions and making millions.
To call this a classic is an understatement. The first book to be read. Read you must.
The content despite many years is so unique that many current market wizards still recommend it as introduction to traders mindset.
