Free Excerpt: The Myth of the Media Diet

This holiday season, consider giving the gift of knowledge. My new book co-authored with Jeff Macke, Clash of the Financial Pundits, remains near the top of its category six months after its release. It was a lot of fun to research and write; our interview subjects were a blast to talk with and the market history lessons we came across were amazingly relevant for investors today.

Below, I’ve embedded the introduction and first chapter, ‘The Myth of the Media Diet’, for you to read. If you enjoy it, get the book. Or give a copy to someone you know who wants to become a more informed investor.
