    1. Ladies of the Ticker by George Robb is everything I hoped it would be, and better. I wanted to read this because of Oscar Wilde.“Why can't these American women stay in their own country? They are always telling us that it is the paradise for women.”“It is. That is the reason why, like Eve, they are so excessively anxious to get out of it.” Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray I know a little about British history, mostly from 19th century novels, and so I was curious about US history. [...]


    2. A well written, well-researched examination of how women have been viewed in the financial echelon of society. I felt Robb touched on an aspect of history that is often woefully neglected with skill and insight. One I will be recommending to friends. I thank NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to get an e-book Arc.


    3. "Ladies of the Ticker" is a history of women involved in the American stock market from around the 1880s to 1920s. The author started by describing the laws (in England and America) that made it difficult for women to control and invest their own money and the changes that came about in the late 1800s that allowed more women to invest in stocks and bonds.The rest of the book focused "the Gilded Age to the Great Depression." He started by describing how novels, magazines, financial manuals, and s [...]


    4. Since Occupy Wall Street has faded from our headlines and rarely do we mention the 99 vs the 1 percent, it was surprising to me how I had never noticed the role that the stock market and women’s role in investing had made in my life. Coming from a Conservative turned Independant background, I knew that I had always been suspicious of self made millionaires of the stock market. I always pictured them as men in ties with oily hair and too bright teeth. Men who gargle with Red Bull and shout into [...]


    5. I applaud women for paving the path for next generations’ women to be independent and to follow their dreams and interests, not to be limited to “women’s professions” as it was called back then. However, the need to be proving this or that by stating mostly dry facts is not an engaging read.The cover of the book is very attractive, suggesting a lot of humor, but the book is nothing like the cover.


    6. I understand the need for thorough research, but I find books that are ALL quotations extremely boring. Give me at least a paragraph or two at a time of your own thoughts. DNF.


    7. The book I would have liked to have read when I took my class of Women’s Studies back in college. The book will appeal to those who like to read about history and particularly women’s history. The book is not long so a lot is said in a few pages which I personally liked. A look at the history of women in finances is an interesting subject and I am sure college professors in women’s studies shall take more than a passing look at this book. Some pictures and illustrations are shown throughou [...]
