Reseña del editor:

"Once I picked it up I did not put it down until I finished ...What Schwed has done is capture fullyin deceptively clean languagethe lunacy at the heart of the investment business. "From the Foreword by Michael Lewis, Bestselling author of Liar's Poker This hilarious portrait of everyday Wall Street and its denizens rings as true today as it did when it was first published in 1940. Writing with a rare mixture of wry cynicism and bonhomie reminiscent of Mark Twain and H. L. Mencken, Fred Schwed, Jr. , skewers everyone including himself in his brilliant send-ups of bankers, brokers, traders, investors, analysts, and hapless customers. "How great to have a reissue of a hilarious classic that proves the more things change the more they stay the same. Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent. " Michael Bloomberg President, Bloomberg, LP " ...one of the funniest books ever written about Wall Street. "Jane Bryant Quinn, The Washington Post "It's amazing how well Schwed's book is holding up after 55 years. About the only thing that's changed on Wall Street is that computers have replaced pencils and graph paper. Otherwise, the basics are the same. The investor's need to believe somebody is matched by the financial advisor's need to make a nice living. If one of them has to be disappointed, it's bound to be the former. "John Rothchild, Author, A Fool and His Money Financial Columnist, Time magazine "A delightful classic and reminder of excesses past and how little things change. " Bob Farrell, Senior Vice President, Merrill Lynch

"John Rothchild, Author, A Fool and His Money Financial Columnist, Time magazine "A delightful classic and reminder of excesses past and how little things change. " Bob Farrell, Senior Vice President, Merrill Lynch A professional trader, who had the good sense to get out after losing a bundle of money in the 1930 crash, offers wry and astute observations on Wall Street along with bottom-line wisdom. Covers the gamut of financial players and the clients who bring them business. Brimming with amusing anecdotes and stories, this often hilarious cautionary tale is fully illustrated. Author: Fred Schwed, Jr., was a professional trader who had the good sense to get out after losing a bundle (of mostly his own money) in the 1929 crash. Some years later, he published a children's book titled Wacky, the Small Boy. Wacky became a bestseller, and Schwed went on to draw further on his experience in writing Where Are the Customers' Yachts? His publisher said of him, "Mr. Schwed has attended Lawrenceville and Princeton and has spent the last ten years on Wall Street. As a result, he knows everything there is to know about children."
