    "No wonder this is a classic"

    I love reading about the stock exchanges at the turn of the 20th century. A full 100 years of financial innovation later, we are no further along than the environment Lefevre describes. And he describes it very well. The narration is excellent and the book is well worth the listen for anybody interested in finance or trading. The author also does a great job of discussing behavioral finance, a field which is supposedly 'new'.

    "Improve your street smarts"
    What did you love best about Reminiscences of a Stock Operator?

    Author describes his mindset, beliefs, and strategy toward stock speculation.


    What other book might you compare Reminiscences of a Stock Operator to and why?

    Compare this with Warren Buffet's most recent biography Snowball and notice the different stock approaches.


    Have you listened to any of Rick Rohan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Very talented reader.


    Any additional comments?

    Would recommend this to those who want to better understand the Wall Street game. While few will read this and actually become proficient stock manipulators -- it does give some useful history and food for thought.If stocks interest you I would also recommend any books by the following authors: Berstein or Bogle. You may also try: A Random Walk Down Wall Street or Beating the Street.

    "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.

    "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.

    "A must read for all traders."
    What made the experience of listening to Reminiscences of a Stock Operator the most enjoyable?

    This book is great, most already know this is a must read for all traders. I read this book before but I enjoyed it so much that I wanted the audio version also since I don't get time to read but a lot of time to listen. I listen at work, so I listen for upwards of 5 to 6 hours at a time, several hours in I did seem to get a little bored, not sure if its cause I already knew the story or if its the performance of the narrator. Overall though I would definitely recommend this book.

    Story
    "Everything in one book!"
    Where does Reminiscences of a Stock Operator rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the best as the author captured the brilliance of livermores mind in such a way that it captures the "how and "why" he trades the way he did. I'm always drawn into the stories as if I'm their!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The author who also deserves credit gets the most out of who is probably the greatest trader of all time. To have gotten inside the mind of this trading genius shows that he would be successful in any era as Livermore know as much about human emotion and how they drive markets up or down and he reacts swiftly long or short! No wonder this is a classic its information is timeless. Glad the author captured this genius thoughts before he died.


    Have you listened to any of Rick Rohan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    A great narration and story teller!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It is too long for one listen so I love the bookmark feature and usually pick it up and listen while i'm on the computer. I'm starting my third listen as I always learn something new!


    Any additional comments?

    Please tell the narrator (Rick Rohan) to narrate the other Livermore classic "How to trade in stocks". I would buy that in a second if it were available.

    Story
    "An insight into trading"
    What made the experience of listening to Reminiscences of a Stock Operator the most enjoyable?

    Great literature offers insight into the human condition. Although trading, in markets, streets and financial markets, is a basic of civilization, little has been written about it. This book is timeless because it explores the discipline and focus required to make a living trading.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The narrative helped me to to recall the behaviour, discipline and nerve necessary to make successful trades. There is nothing like it and I never want to do it again. The book outlines the mindset necessary to run a scalping business in boarding school, the street corner or on the trading floor. It is a rare, and inglorious state of mind that has is almost never explored in literature. In Shakespeare, Shylock is an impoverished narrative of the mindset of a merchant trader. This book goes beyond the cardboard cutouts of merchant trader, and looks at the processe and human relationships necessary to sustain this vein of life. In this sense, it is a classic.
