I came across this book and got interested because it deals with Wall Street and how it functions. It details stories about people making money on Wall Street. A way to learn is to understand how others have made their money on Wall Street and then try to apply certain aspects of their strategy to our own.
As as newbie investor (I just got seriously started this year) I make a point of finding books and articles that are informative and allow me to learn more about investing. One such book is The Money Game by Adam Smith.
