This book is a must-read. What could be a trudge through hundreds of pages of dense economic explanation becomes an entertaining education when intertwined with the life story of one of Wall Street s greatest investment strategists. --Fred Fraenkel, Vice Chairman, Cowen Inc.
Imagine that your favorite uncle is a legend on Wall Street and agrees to share with you everything he has learned. That is pretty much what this book does. It should be required reading for grad students trying to gain perspective on the capital markets and what drives them. This will be a book I refer to for many years to come. --Michael J. Krach Jr., CFA, Investment Advisor, Private Wealth Advisors
For anyone interested in forecasting, in any of dozens of financial areas, this book is worth reading carefully and keeping fairly close to one's desk indefinitely. --Richard Vietor, Professor, Harvard Business School

I find I am reading other things before pick up this book...disappointed!
I am not a sophisticated economist but did subscribe to the Feds Monthly Business Review which I tried to read like tea leaves.
The author does a wonderful job of making the complex dismal science readable, entertaining and leaves one with a sense of an optimistic future.
I check for a new entry in Dr. Ed's Blog daily. Market up, market down a new blog entry always starts my day with a smile.
