Editorial Reviews

Review

“Mark Grant writes with conviction, panache, and an internal radar focus used on the critical issues of evolving investment markets. I read his daily commentary and this book is just as compelling.”
— Bill Gross, Co-Chief Investment Officer, PIMCO

From the Author

All markets, it seems to me, are the subjects of two masters; Greed and Fear. Everything else we discuss and get lost in analyzing are subsets of these two taskmasters.

Mark J. Grant

Format: Hardcover
"Out of the Box and onto Wall Street" is different from most finance related books. It is not only informational, but so original and entertaining. It is the perfect blend of theory and personal stories over the last few years of tumultuous market times. I highly recommend it and think it would make a great gift for any market follower!

Mark approaches the financial markets with discipline, perseverance and consistency. His daily market commentary displays a knowledge and understanding that only 38 years on Wall Street can, but his sense of humor is what makes his musings so original. This book is a "best of the best" of Mark's daily commentaries over the last few years and his foresight and interpretation of geopolitical and economic events is an invaluable, entertaining and educational read for any investor.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I recently bought and read this book hoping to get some solid insight into bond buying for individual investors. While if offered some insight into the heirarchy of investing for safety and capital preservation, you mostly had to glean that out of a series of newsletters he wrote for his professional investment clients. I think in essence, he just stapled together a bunch of old newsletters. I would like to have seen a chapter on bond investing, past, present and future. I assume Mr Grant is very successful but I fail to see how this book helps the average guy get ahead in the bond world. He tended to drone on about some federally backed preferred stock he bought for his mother and then the federal government wouldn't make good on the dividends. He attributed a quote to Abaham Lincoln on page 354 that was actually made by William J.H. Boetcker in 1916. I gave the book to the public library hoping someone, perhaps smarter than me, would get the benefit that I missed.

This compilation of Mark's daily thought provoking observations for his clients is a "must read" for any investor (new and old) - experience is the best teacher and these are words from the 'battlefield' of international finance. Readers will clearly benefit from a market insiders view of government action and market reactions during the Great Recession.
