Leon Levy's

The Mind of Wall Street

(PublicAffairs, Perseus Book Group, New York, NY, paperback, 2002)


This book is somewhat autobiographical. Leon Levy was one of the founders of Oppenheimer. Because the book starts, in time, where it does, it begins where Lefevre's ends. The two books together make an interesting historical account of the markets.

In this book, Levy makes a strong case for markets being more psychological than being pureIy rational. It is well written and easy to read. Since Levy is his own best explainer I quote below from passages throughout the book:

Leon Levy is a comfortable as an old shoe. He in insightful about people and their behaviors in the market place. This book is a great read.
