How To Make Your Fortune from the Stock Exchange Vivian Ellis

How To Make Your Fortune from the Stock Exchange - Vivian Ellis

London: Frederick Muller, 1962, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.

From the cover: “By the time Vivian Ellis was twenty-seven he had five musical shows running concurrently in the West End of London, all working to pay off his losses on the Stock Exchange. From this inauspicious beginning, he started studying the Stock markets seriously, in order, as he puts it, to work his passage home.

After six years of wartime R. N. V. R. service, he set about recouping his losses and during the run of Bless the Bride was assiduously rebuild-ing his fortune. How he succeeded in doing so provides the material of this informative and amusingly unorthodox book.

Tongue in cheek, the author takes the reader on a voyage of discovery to the Eldorado of his own making. His description of the shoals and rocks that lie in wait for the inexperienced investor are uproariously funny, but underlining the laughs are some hard-hitting truths. Sparing nobody, least of all himself, Mr. Ellis makes a virtue of his failures and a mockery of his success, but in neither case does his shrewdness and sense of humour desert him.”
