With regard to the point about Livermore going bust 3 times it depends on how much you think the stock market works like gambling, but a lot of the worlds greatest poker players have gone broke, often more than once. It doesn't mean that they were charlatans or hype merchants though.
If Livermore really did leave a suicide note claiming that his life had been a total failure then what are we supposed to read into that? Would he liked to have been a better person? Did he think he should have used his money for some higher purpose than simply to make even more money? it's not the same thing as claiming that the man's life had been a total sham.
I gave the book 2 stars only because of the personal information that had never appeared anywhere else, but really this is a strangely shoddy and utterly biased account of Livermore.
Described as a 'Master Market Manipulator', 'Boy Plunger' and 'the Great Bear'.
Jesse L. Livermore's true story is re-created in this book by Paul Sarnoff, an excellent starting point for traders in their 'journey' to find the Truth.
Although lacking in technical analysis, or mathematical tools, this book provides a rare insight into the thoughts of a professional trader.
Have pencil ready to underline some classic ideas from Jesse Livermore, like one of his rules, "Don't make the same error twice." One of Aristotle's doctrines is that learning "comes from suffering"......Livermore was certainly Aristotelian.
Although not as informative as Edwin Lefevre's fictionalized biography of Jesse Livermore, this book is still mandatory reading for traders starting out.
Livermore firmly espouses the maxim "If there is any easy money lying around in Wall Street, no one is going to put it into your pocket".
Included is a basic chart of a Livermore rally and trend with price levels of U.S.Steel and Bethlehem Steel from 1938, and some pictures in the back.
Worth a read. END
