I want to thank all of you for keeping my new book, Clash of the Financial Pundits, on the charts and in the news.
Most new books are able to get a good amount of attention during the week of their launch – but a book having legs beyond that initial barrage of media is much less common. The fact that Jeff Macke and I are still seeing comments and reviews come in from new readers is immensely gratifying. We even got a nice write-up from TIME this week, check it out here.
Anyway, today I have something really special for you – the first full-chapter excerpt of the book published anywhere. What you’re about to read below is one of my favorite parts of the book – it’s Chapter 7: The Man Who Moved Markets.
The chapter tells the true story of “Calamity Joe” Granville, one of the all-time great pundits and disastrous market-timers. Before there was CNBC, before Cramer and before the Internet, Granville was touring arenas and ballrooms around the country, giving trading advice to sold-out crowds and bringing the ruckus wherever he went.
I really hope you enjoy reading it as much I enjoyed researching and writing it! – JB
