Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
Jesse Livermore, was the most successful stock trader that ever operated. Singlehandedly he caused the two great Wall Street crashes of 1907 and 1929, making millions from both. Briefly in the early 1930s he was one of the worlds richest men with a personal fortune believed to be worth over $150 million. It was too extreme a change of fortunes and Livermore shot himself in a New York hotel lobby in 1940 aged just 63.
Biografía del autor
Tom Rubython is best known as the author of Life of Senna, the definitive biography of Brazilian race driver Ayrton Senna. Life of Senna has become the biggest-selling third party biography of a racing driver, with 100,000 copies sold. Six years after its publication, it still sells over 8,000 copies a year. Before beginning as a biographer, Rubython was well known in the world of magazine publishing, spanning the worlds of sport and business. Aside from his work in Formula One, he has been a specialist business writer for thirty years. In business, he is the former editor of BusinessAge, EuroBusiness and Spectator Business. In sport, he has edited F1 Magazine, BusinessF1 and SportsPro. Rubython now specializes in non-fiction storytelling. He is passionate and methodical about the process of writing and researching the definitive biography. Starting out with a determination to tell the full story of a persons life, he emphasizes what is important and de-emphasizes what is not; the crucial tools of any biographer.
Paul Tudor Jones connection with Jesse Livermore began when he started his career in finance at Livermores first broker, E.F. Hutton at the age of 26. Shortly afterwards he founded his own investment firm, the Tudor Investment Corporation. He became a student of Livermore and resolved that every new employee be handed a copy of Reminiscences of a Stock Operator, the fictional biography of Livermore, on their first day at work. His study of Livermores methods paid off in 1987 when he was able to predict Black Monday on 19th October 1987. Employing exactly the same short strategies as Livermore did in 1907 and 1929 he is said to have tripled his net worth that day. He never looked back and by 2014 his firm had over $14 billion under management. He has consistently made money for himself and his clients so much so that Forbes magazine rated him the 345th richest man in the world in its 2014 wealth rankings. Nowadays he devotes as much of his time to philanthropy as making money for himself running the highly successful Robin Hood Foundation. He started it to give money away himself and encourage other successful fund managers to do so as well. The Foundation is unique in that 100% of donations are spent on good causes. Fortune magazine called it: one of the most innovative and influential philanthropic organizations of our time.

Almost everyone interested in stock trading has heard of Jesse Livermore who made $ 100 million in the crash of ’29. He was a fascinating man who lived fully and knew everyone on Wall Street from Joseph P. Kennedy to Bernard Baruch. Yet when he died in 1940 less than $ 5 million was left. His fictionalized story appears in “Reminiscences of a Stock Operator” by Edwin LeFevre who knew him and interviewed him thoroughly. Many young stockbrokers are required to read that classic. A good, relatively recent book focusing on his techniques was written by Richard Smitten. It’s for the reader to decide the extent to which these techniques are still useful
I’ve read LeFevre and Smitten, both good, but this book is simply spectacular. It is wonderfully written and a very complete biography. The author extensively reviewed, it seems, everything about Livermore. What I especially like is the way the author explains the economic and societal environment at each stage of Livermore’s career. Also, he appears to have gained great insight into the evolution of Livermore’s mind over his career of more than forty-five years.
This work has an extensive bibliography, active index, and some good pictures (a bit small on Kindle). All in all this should be the classic Livermore story for modern traders and those simply interested in the American economy from 1890 to WWII.
Livermore was a fascinating man and the world's greatest speculator. I liked the book so much I read it twice and highlighted the most important parts (to me). Mr. Rubython did an excellent job of researching this book. Highly recommended.
Tom Rubython answers all of those questions and much more with this book, Jessie Livermore, Boy Plunger.
One of those rare books you just cannot put down until you've read it all.
5 stars for this engaging story!
