Pretty Good
Being a big fan of Livermore, I was hoping this book had the same depth. It was OK.

Nostalgic Yet Delightful
This book is, by historic accounts, Jesse Livermore's suicide note. He describes his trading methods - ever so careful of misplacing readers' trust. He talks about markets of the 1920's and 1940's - making careful distinction between "narrow" (straightforward) and "deep" (whipsaw) markets, about psychological pitfalls, sector rotation and even pairs trading.

This book reads a lot like W.D. Gann's presentation, definitely not as entertaining as "Reminiscences of a Stock Operator" - but more to the point.

A classic no nonense book from the world's greatest trader
Thank goodness Jesse Livermore was willing to give us some of his incredible wisdom before he committed suicide. He is the most successful stock trader that has ever lived and in this book he reveals his most closely kept trading secrets. An educational and insightful book that is more than just a trading book. Another must have for your trading library.

A Master Trader
*This is the same book but its a different version. The one I read was definitely not 89 dollars. It was 15 from amazon.

The first thing I have to mention is that I don't trade how Livermore traded, and I probably never will. But that doesn't mean that this book isn't worth reading just to pick up what a master of shorting the markets had to say. The knowledge that you can glean from this book is timeless; about sectors, pivotal points (support and resistance. Pivotal points has an interesting ring to it though) and the psychology of trading (doing pretty much the opposite of everyone else)

Second, the actual content written by Livermore himself is kind of short ( I guess he wasn't into writing that much) The send half of the book is set up of modern day examples of how to trade like him.

This isn't strictly a how to guide, but it does have pointers and tips that are relevant today. The value is in what Livermore had to say.

Great read
I have read many books on trading and have to agree with many other reviewers here - Livermore's original text is like gold. On some pages I found myself underlining almost every line. I found that the second two thirds of the book were filled with repeat quotes, repeated charts and some spelling errors. For the first third though I have given it 4 stars - the original text is hard to find (although I have just picked it up now on Wikipedia thanks to another reader's review). Trade in the strongest stocks in the strongest sector!
