Reminiscences of a Stock Operator

"Reminiscences of a Stock Operator" is a 1923 book written by Edwin Lefèvre which tells a fictionalized version of the early years of the life story of Jesse Livermore; the Wall Street Journal describes the book as a "classic".

A Classic Book on the Art of Speculation

First published in 1923, "Reminiscences" is a fictionalized account of the life of the trader Jesse Livermore.

The book tells the story of Livermore's progression to day trading in the then so-called New England "bucket shops", from there to market speculator, market maker, and market manipulator, and finally to Wall Street where he made and lost his fortune several times over. Along the way, Livermore learns many lessons, which he happily shares with the reader. Despite the book's age, it continues to offer insights into the art of trading and speculation.

In Jack Schwagers Market Wizards, "Reminiscences" was quoted as a major source of stock trading learning material for experienced and new traders by many of the traders who Schwager interviewed.

The book remains in print as of 2008, ISBN 0471770884.
