Illustrated by a famous French illustrator : dive into the New York of the 1920s !
This book, written by Edwin Lefèvre in 1923, is a part biographical and part fictional story (possibly mythological someday) of Jesse Livermore (referred to in the narrative as Larry Livingstone), an american speculator who unleashed passions during his lifetime at the beginning of the 20th century.
But beware, this text is not like others. It’s not one more book on speculation that will be forgotten before the ink dries.
Indeed, if you ask professional traders to name people who may have influenced their view of trading, many will spontaneously quote Jesse Livermore and Reminiscences of a Stock Operator.
