"In 'The Work of Wall Street' Sereno S. Pratt has not contented himself with the authorship of the best book published on the mechanism, personality, function, operations, and ramifications of the financial Isis and Osiris of the western world, but has written it in a style which for clearness and interest is fascinating. He has drawn the veil from what to so many has been a mystery, so that one may easily see the wheels revolve, almost hear them click. . . . Those whose libraries or tastes include the works of such writers as Bryce, Jevons, Sumner, and White will surely discover a niche beside them for 'The Work of Wall Street.'"--ALBERT C. STEVENS (former Editor Bradstreet's) in Newark Evening News.
"A book that can not be too highly recommended to those who desire to know what Wall Street is and how it does its work."--Wall Street Journal.
"It is one of the best books on Wall Street that has ever been published."--Brooklyn Eagle.
"A well-written and generally thorough digest of the operations of the financial district."--New York Sun.
"It has no equal."-- New York Press.
"The most fascinating presentation possible of a subject of the utmost interest to business men and students of economics."--Chicago Record-Herald.
"Clear, simple, direct, straightforward, impartial, and, above all, informing. . . . Mr. Pratt has done a real service in describing the things which the stock exchange accomplishes, and its usefulness to the nation at large."--Boston Herald.
"The author knows the ins and outs of the New York stock market, and the book is veritably a mine of knowledge about matters very little understood by the public. . . . Particularly valuable are Mr. Pratt's explanations of the jargons of the street--of words and phrases which to most persons not actively engaged in the stock business are quite unintelligible."--Philadelphia Ledger.
