So it was written by a journalist and was a "fictionalized biography of Livermore". So was the content for the book actually garnered from Livermore himself through interviews, etc or did the author just make up all the advice and everything himself? Just wondering. The book is pretty good, but I have wondered about that for a while....was this just what LeFevre made up about Livermore, including the "sage wisdom", or did Livermore actually offer input on the book? That would be like me writing a book about Paul Tudor Jones and telling all this stuff about him and making up quotes and stuff he never said...or like if PitBull was written by some random journalist who had made up everything about Schwartz. Sorry if the question sounds dense, but I never was able to figure it out.
