"Once I picked it up I did not put it down until I finished... What Schwed has done is capture fully-in deceptively clean language-the lunacy at the heart of the investment business. " -- From the Foreword by Michael Lewis, Bestselling author of Liar's Poker "... one of the funniest books ever written about Wall Street.
"Adam Smith continues to dazzle and sparkle! With the passage of time, Supermoney has, if anything, added to its power to inspire, arouse, provoke, motivate, inform, illuminate, entertain, and guide a whole new generation of readers, while marvelously reprising the global money show for earlier fans. " - David M.
The Go-Go Years "The Go-Go Years is not to be read in the usual manner of Wall Street classics. You do not read this book to see our present situation reenacted in the past, with only the names changed. You read it because it is a wonderful description of the way things were in a different time and place.
The 1920s and 1930s constituted an unforgettable epoch in Wall Street history. The creation and destruction of wealth is mirrored in the life of Richard Whitney, the president of the New York Stock Exchange. The book also examines the drama, ruthlessness, greed, and fantasy of the era.
"There is one thing that can be said about A Fool and His Money that cannot be said about any other colume of investment advice: You will never make a penny from the information in this book. No work on the subject of personal finance has even tried to make this claim before. That is because works on the subject of personal finance are all lying.
"The market never ceases to befuddle and beguile. These two venerable works are fixtures on the short lists for most valuable books on the securities markets, and investors continue to cherish them. " -From the Introduction by Martin S. Fridson Managing Director, Merrill Lynch & Co.
Michael Edleson first introduced the concept of value averaging in a 1988 paper, and soon after wrote a book on the concept while he was a finance professor at the Harvard Business School. His book--which today is hard to find, but in high demand--is now regarded by many in the investment community as a true investment classic.
Originally published in 1982, Risk Arbitrage has become a classic on arbitrage strategies by the "dean of the arbitrage community. " It provides an overview of risk arbitrage, how it has been used over the centuries and particularly in modern markets, with a focus on merger arbitrage.
"Loeb tells us to put all our eggs in one basket, and watch the basket. " -John RothchildFinancial Columnist, Time magazine "This book is very special in my life. It is the very first Wall Street book I ever read.
