Summary: This 1970 title, published a year after the summer of love, is Flumiani at his eccentric best. The awkward prose and skewed perspectives Flumiani had on the markets in the 60’s and 70’s are now a welcome diversion to what is otherwise a generally straight jacketed approach by other authors to explain stock market price movement. The Secret Sexual Life of the Stock Market is probably the most entertaining of the Flumiani Collection, and in my opinion actually one of his most coherent. This was the first book Flumiani authored as Fleming, the 2nd was “The Failure of the American Democracy,” in 1973, and at least one more in 1977. Extremely Scarce Title, Collectible Reprint.
