Great story with a sad ending
Good overview of the life and investing philosophy of one of the pioneers of "techno-fundamentalist" stock trading.

The book would have been better served, though, by ending when Livermore shoots himself to death instead of rambling on about the disastrous lives of his ex-wife and son.

Not new
If you already own or have read 'the amazing life of jesse livermore', skip this one. except for the its title and certain minor editing, this book is almost identical to the latter.

Fact is usually much more amazing than fiction.
Fact is usually much more amazing than fiction. Well in this case that is exactly right. Jesse Livermore is probably only known by a few in the investment/trading world but his mark is assured in history.

This guy is freaking amazing. Sad life, but what a story. Imagine being so powerful (because you are such an amazing trader) that the top banker in the world begs you for help to save the Amercian economy.

If you liked this book you might like to check out: The Biography of Andr Meyer: A Story of Money, Power, and the Reshaping of American Business. It's not a trading book but the stories of banking, money, power are every bit as incredible as Jesse's story. This is in my top three along with Jesse's book.

the experience of the greatest bear in the stock market 1900
this book combines the insights of livermore with the chaos in his personal life. i'm not sure that you can combine the bare genius with a lifetime of living without the chaos. he read prices of sector/stocks like some people read music. it appeared to me that he lived alone in his head but always wanted family/friends around him. and many family/friends disappointed him.

i was struck with several new ideas while reading the book and was left with wanting to read more about him, read what he wrote, read why he committed suicide.

of course, this dedication took a lot of energy and perhaps he ran out of the energy necessary to make a living for himself and his family. worse, his personal life turned out badly in many ways, and this great sadness multiplied over time.

this book is a buy, as an introduction. perhaps you will be inspired by the ideas in the book and want to read more, as i did.

Jesse Livermore: World's Greatest Stock Trader
I'd almost prefer to say that it's a good thing that he's dead because no man could live up to this much hype. Anything about Jesse Livermore seems to be an interesting read. The man led an interesting life, one that will likely never be duplicated. The stories of his character and life read like a novel, and maybe it doesn't matter how much is real and how much is embellished because Jesse Livermore will forever be a referenced icon in the world of speculation. The man could read a ticker as if it were words on a sheet of paper.
