The Art of Speculation presents a complete review of the tools of the speculator and offers a full education on a variety of securities — especially bonds, stocks, and derivatives. Philip L. Carret was a Wall Street legend and pioneer of one of the first mutual funds. Warren Buffett said of Carret that he had "the best long term investment record of anyone I know." "The Art of Speculation is laden with insights and studies that are as fresh today as newly cut grass . . . a joy to read. The topics covered were timeless in 1931 . . . and written in 24-carat prose" (Victor Niederhoffer).
