    "Excellent book. Surprisingly timely."

    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 and useful recount"

    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.

    "Spot on!"

    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.

    "Reminiscences of a Stock Operator - A sure classic"

    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.

    "timeless information"

    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.

    Story
    "Hands down...THE BEST!!"

    Not only is this story a fascinating account of the career of a trader, but the strategy, techniques, and psychology detailed in this recollection has not changed much in the nearly 100years since it's initial telling.
    As someone who has recently fallen in love with the markets, and thirsts for knowledge, this book will give you the most exciting tale that spans the career of an original "market wizard"!

    In regards to the performance...this narrator is among the best I have heard in an audiobook! He really brings the story to life with his use of character voices and the style in which he reads. It feels like it's coming right from the mouth of "Larry Livingston" himself! Not only that, but you truly feel immersed in the experience and can see the story unfold easily in your mind. I found myself sitting in the couch for hours just listening with headphones and living life in the markets during the turn of the previous century. A great deal, of course, comes from the incredible writing style of the author.

    I highly and enthusiastically recommend for anyone with interest in the markets!!!!

    "Historical, Fictional, Necessary"

    The book is a fundamental layout on how the market works on a basic view. The views of early 1900 correlate to today's trades. Fantastic story for anyone interested in stock markets, history, or just want an easy listen\read
