NEW THIRD EDITION! Confessions of a FORMER Wall Street Whiz Kid is a thought-provoking, real-life story of the ups and downs and ups again of one of Wall Street’s “half-famous” financial geniuses, Peter Grandich. In 1987, at the tender age of 31, this high school drop-out was dubbed “The Wall Street Whiz Kid” by Good Morning America after accurately predicting the Black Monday stock market crash. He has since made so many stunningly-accurate market calls and financial predictions that he may well go down as the Madam Marie of the economic world. As a result, his daily financial blog has become one of the most popular on the web.
In this updated third edition of his witty and painfully honest autobiography, Grandich shares his thoughts about the accumulation of wealth and the hidden flaws of traditional financial planning. He exposes some of the dirty business of Wall Street and takes readers on a journey through his battles against panic attacks, suicide attempts and depression, and he shares how his faith not only helped him regain the will to live, but acts as the foundation for his financial beliefs.
A contrarian by nature, Grandich also explains what he sees as the next great threat to the US – not terrorism or bio-warfare, but an economic time bomb of unprecedented proportion.
Confessions of a Former Wall Street Whiz Kid is just that: a complete divulgence of matters of life, health, wealth—and, of course, the ins and outs of Wall Street.
