Description
"This is a modern classic." Paul A. Samuelson, First American Nobel Prize Winner in Economics
"The best book there is about the stock market and all that goes with it." The New York Times Book Review
"Anyone whose orientation is toward where the action is, where the happenings happen, should buy a copy of The Money Game and read it with due diligence." Book World
" 'Adam Smith' is a veteran observer and commentator on the events and people of Wall Street.... His thorough knowledge of financial affairs gives his observations a great degree of authenticity. But the joy of reading this book comes from his delightful sense of humor. He is a lively and ingeniously witty writer who never stoops to acerbity. None of the solemn, sacred cows of Wall Street escapes debunking." Library Journal


About the Author
"The Money Game, written by one who signs himself 'Adam Smith' (and who some believe is Harvard-and-Oxford-trained George J. W. Goodman), is a modern-day classic. Like many modern paintings, the book looks simple. But as W. Somerset Maugham said about an unforgettable Mondrian abstraction: 'It looks as though you had only to take a ruler, a tube of black paint and a tube of red, and you could do the thing yourself. Try!' " Professor Paul A. Samuelson, First American Nobel Prize Winner in Economics. "Everyone who is anyone in U.S. investment already knows about 'Adam Smith, ' " wrote Newsweek. 'Adam Smith' is also the author of Supermoney and Powers of Mind."
