Praise for The Day Trader

"A legendary S&P floor trader has written a powerful, brutally honest chronicle of his determined rise to the top of his profession. Touching and insightful, this riveting account is one of the best trading memoirs ever."––NELSON FREEBURG, PUBLISHER, FORMULA RESEARCH

"The Day Trader provides a rare look into the events that shaped the extraordinary character of one of the most unique people to ever put on a trading jacket . . . it comes as no surprise that Borsellino places himself at the center of the maelstrom surrounding electronic trading versus open outcry and provides a truly balanced, intelligent, and unemotional view of the momentous transformation occurring in the financial markets. It is imperative that anyone involved in trading the markets––either traditionally or electronically––read this story and benefit from the insights of one of the great traders of our lifetime."––MARIO ALBERICO, FORMER SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT, ELECTRONIC TRADING, CHICAGO MERCANTILE EXCHANGE

"The Day Trader is must reading for anyone in the market. Lewis Borsellino is an Italian American hero who climbed the mountain with guts and honor. The neighborhood kid will always remember where he came from."––DOMINIC DI FRISCO, PRESIDENT EMERITUS, JOINT CIVIC COMMITTEE OF ITALIAN AMERICANS
