After accumulating a fortune on the stock exchange, Nicolas Darvas (1920-1977) documented his insights in the 1960 book How I Made 2,000,000 in the Stock Market. The book recounts the author's trading experiences from the 1950s to 1960 and explains his unique system of buying and selling stocks. After many failures, Darvas developed excellent stock-selecting skills by means of his “box” system. In order to find out what stocks to buy, one must have access to information. An engaging narrative, Darvas’ book is highly recommended for the novice or prospective investor or trader. It remains a classic in its genre 60 years later.
