Publisher's Summary

Hungarian by birth, Nicolas Darvas trained as an economist at the University of Budapest. Reluctant to remain in Hungary until either the Nazis or the Soviets took over, he fled at the age of 23 with a forged exit visa and 50 pounds sterling to stave off hunger in Istanbul, Turkey. During his off hours as a dancer, he read some 200 books on the market and the great speculators, spending as much as eight hours a day studying.

Darvas invested his money into a couple of stocks that had been hitting their 52-week high. He was utterly surprised that the stocks continued to rise and subsequently sold them to make a large profit. His main source of stock selection was Barron's Magazine. At the age of 39, after accumulating his fortune, Darvas documented his techniques in the book, How I Made 2,000,000 in the Stock Market. The book describes his unique "Box System", which he used to buy and sell stocks. Darvas' book remains a classic stock market text to this day.

Inspiring journey of a new investor

The story is amazing, inspiring, so many things to learn from the narrator's experience! A must listen for a new investor! The technical details of the trades sometimes become boring but the overall content is amazing! Loved it!

Very simple technique but very difficult to follow in today’s era

Like the way he trade.
Buy at high price n sell at higher price- golden rule to make money.
I am also following this rule and it’s work very well.
Book written before 70 years still make same sense.
Human psychology never changes.

Poor job from the narrator, fluff book

Omg! Where are you flying to, Mr. Narrator? Reads too fast. Even after slowing the speed, it is still too fast. Also this book is just fluff. Waste of my credit. Nothing deep or useful to learn. Narrator also didn’t help to make it worthwhile. Bad bad bad!

Great story

Another inspiring stock market story! I think the best part about this book is that Darvas goes over many failures as he was trying to figure out how the market works, which is reality. Good stuff!

Simple and to the Point

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The author tells his story of how he made his fortune trading stocks. After a very rocky start he eventually devises his own relatively simple method for trading which he calls his "Box System". The one slight criticism I would have is that listening in audio format sometimes the lists of stock prices are a bit hard to follow and would likely be better displayed in a visual format.

Not detailed enough

Too much information on type of trades but less detailed on the strategy employed to find trades and implements it. Ir simplified the whole process .
