My Own Story is a highly entertaining, thoughtful, and richly detailed account of the life and times of Bernard Mannes Baruch, one of the most effective and influential men that America has ever produced.
The entertaining aspect comes from his focus on people: his ancestors who arrived in America in the early 18th century, his grandfather the southern gentleman and his father the Civil War surgeon, the many famous financiers with whom he associated at the turn of the 19th century and his association as an adviser to seven US presidents.
The thoughtful aspect comes from his commentary about the financial, social, and political events over his then 87-year life when this book was published in 1957. As a young "runner" on Wall Street Baruch observed the panic of 1893, drawing the conclusion that great fortunes could be made by buying when everyone else had abandoned the markets.
