"In my interviews with over 30 of the best traders of our time, there were some questions that I raised in each conversation. One of these was: Are there any books that you found particularly valuable and would recommend to aspiring traders? By far, the most frequent response was Reminiscences of a Stock Operator-a book that was over 70 years old!"
—from the Foreword by Jack Schwager, author of Market Wizards and The New Market Wizards
"Although Reminiscences.was first published some 70 years ago, its take on crowd psychology and market timing is as timely as last summer's frenzy on the foreign exchange markets."
"The most entertaining book written on investing is Reminiscences of a Stock Operator, by Edwin Lefevre, first published in 1923."
—The Seattle Times
"The best book I've read is Reminiscences of a Stock Operator. I keep a supply for people who come to work for me."
"After 20 years and many re-reads, Reminiscences is still one of my all-time favorites."
—Kenneth L. Fisher
