Reminiscences of a Stock Operator

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

Despite the book's age, it continues to offer insights into the art of trading and speculation. In Jack Schwager's Market Wizards, Reminiscences is 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 tells the story of Livermore's progression from day trading in the then so-called "New England bucket shops," 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.  The book is considered an investment classic.
