Editorial Review - Book Description:
Nicolas Darvas, the man who made $2,000,000 in the stock market in his spare time, shows you exactly how he answers the all-important question: "Which stocks are going to make money for me?" In this book, Darvas first portrays the market he knows so intimately - the gambling house with dealers on one side, winners on the other. He also shows how he places the odds in his favor and reduces the element of risk. This brilliant book reveals the treasury of methods Darvas developed to enable him to make - and keep - a fortune. Now you can learn what Nicolas Darvas knows: How to pick stocks that are going to make money for you!

Classic, finally republished, May 15, 2008 BySteve Burns (Nashville, TN) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Wall Street: The Other Las Vegas by Nicolas Darvas (the author of How I Made $2,000,000 In The Stock Market) (Paperback) I spent $150 on this book to buy it used before this new version was published,and I have no regrets about paying the $150. After reading over 85 books on stock trading and studying the greatest stock traders of all time, in my opinion Nicolas Darvas is the greatest stock trader who ever lived. No one that I am aware of ever made so much money in such a short amount of time with such a small starting point. Darvas started with only $2,000 in stock, his 1st stock quadrupled in a few months. With in a few years of trial and error he had turned $8,000 into $100,000 then finished out his final 18 months turning that into $2.4 million dollars (This is about 13 million adjusted for inflation). He then removed his money from the market due to no stocks meeting his criteria and avoided the bear market of the early 60's. On his journey he never lost any of his own money, only losing previous winnings. I love this book and his previous one because he gives specifics, with dates and amounts...

Pure dynamite, November 6, 2008 ByLuis Fermi (Lima, Peru) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Wall Street: The Other Las Vegas by Nicolas Darvas (the author of How I Made $2,000,000 In The Stock Market) (Paperback) A very entartaining way to learn Darvas' trading methods. Here you can find them explained in a manner much clearer than the one found in his first book. Even the stock picking criteria is there! Even if you do not apply his methods, you'll have a good reading time.

Good book, October 9, 2008 ByTheLawyerTrader.net (Texas) - See all my reviews This review is from: Wall Street: The Other Las Vegas by Nicolas Darvas (the author of How I Made $2,000,000 In The Stock Market) (Paperback) I'm kinda on the fence as far as 4 or 5 stars but since it's Darvas I'll give him 5. It's a good book but not near as good as his first (How I Made 2,000,000...). Now that it has been reprinted and is selling at reasonable prices, it is certainly worth the time and money. If you haven't read the first book though, go buy and read it first because it's a classic. As for the actual content of this book, I agree with the other reviewer about the first 3/4s of the book...lots of filler and general commentary about the market. That's not to say it's not entertaining, it's just not as good as the last quarter of the book. Just buy it and read it.
