    "A Good Listen"

    A great way to gain insight into some of the fundamental practices of the early market that often still hold true today. Psychology, strategy, manipulation and perseverance are viewed through the eyes of a masterful stock player during the early days of the market.

    Used as a means to gain insight into some of the foundational elements of the market I compare this book to learning long division by hand. Sure the market has evolved over time but by understanding many of the initial reasons and motivations for todays activities the listener gains a much wider sense of the market as a whole.

    "Reminiscences of a Stock Operator" should be required reading for investors.

    "Must read"

    This is a must read for anyone (day traders, investors etc). Very educational! Book introduces you to many things including bucket shops, the fallacy of following the crowd and how fundamentally nothing changes in wall street. This book is an eye opener and following some of the simple principles mentioned will get anyone ahead of the crowd and will make some $. I continue to listen to this book regularly.

    "One of the best"

    This is one of the best books I have read. Open, honest, and true. I have traded future, commodities, and general stocks. I can tell you I could relate a whole lot to this book.

    Beyond trading, this is a great book for life and entrepreneurship in general. Do yourself a favor, and read it.

    "Buy this stock!"

    Although most of the stock manipulations described in Reminiscences are now illegal, the stories in this book are really fascinating. The author was a trader in the days when the Big Board was just that: a big chalk board with clerks running around writing in share prices. Still, this is a fascinating read, and you don't have to be a subscriber to Investors Business Daily to enjoy this. He begins in bucket shops before the turn of the last century, takes you through the Panic of 1907 and goes up to the 1929 crash. The observations of the author, who made and lost fortunes, are relevant to anybody who confronts risk on a daily basis. The narration is very clear, very well done.

    "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.
