A great insiders tale

The days of being a full service stockbroker are gone. Everyone is now a "Planner" or "Advisor"...but the goal of the business remains the same: How do you find great clients and at the same time implement an investment philosophy that is exciting, unique, and can help your clients acheive their goals? Lanyi accomplished both in his legendary career. No one has ever given a fully open and honest look inside a full commission stock brokerage business. Lanyi does this -- with wit, charm, and warmth. Is it on par with "One Up on Wall Street" or "Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits"? No. But it is a great book. For those who feel the writing is overly simplistic - they should look no further than a Berkshire Hathaway Annual Report - part of Buffet's charm is his ability to break down the complicated so it is digestable and understandable. Lanyi takes the same approach. Definitely a worthwhile read - for investors and new "advisors" alike...

Great Read

Great Book Easy to follow The man makes sense No mumblejumbo investment talk

Great Reading, Very Inspiring

This book is an excellent tool in personal motivation. A very good read that gives insight to the complex world of Wall Street.

A great book for beginners

If you are familiar with the fundamentals of investing and take an interest in stocks, then this book is a great resource to learn more about the inside of a full commision brokerage. I have been reading actively for about a year now on investing in the stock markets. I have the fundamentals down. This book gave me insight that I never got from the typical 'intro' books to stocks and the stock markets. Great insight to the structure of a broker, and how full commision brokerage firms work. Some real gems in this book. If you read The Motley Fool and enjoyed it, this is a very good book to follow.
