"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 ofThe Money Gameand 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

think of Comsat as your baby, or even think "That's mine, and I bought it a lot
lower." A stock is for all practical purposes, a piece of paper that sits in a bank
vault. Most likely you will never see it. It may or may not have an Intrinsic Value;
what it is worth on any given day depends on the confluence of buyers and
