Available in print and digital formats.Read the following excerpt from the Foreword:I suspect that most of us have a daily routine when it comes to reading the news and looking for insightful commentary and analysis. I know that I do- and my routine includes seeing what John Authers has to say.John’s daily column in the Financial Times is a “must read” for many of us who are not just interested in markets, but also involved in their inner workings, daily fluctuations, and volatile emotions. His writings provide us with timely insights into market developments and the outlook- and they fuel interesting, and at times, lively debates in the marketplace.You will understand, therefore, how delighted and honored I was when John asked me to write a foreword for this wonderful book. I also felt intimidated at the thought of appearing in print together with one of the best writers in the financial media. Thankfully, this foreword is of a length that would limit any meaningful comparison of my approach to writing with John’s engaging and insightful style.This enjoyable and fast-moving book is written in the style of John’s daily columns–concise, relevant, and containing perceptive examples. Think of the book as your vehicle for a journey of discovery. Each stop will precisely inform you of the forces that have come together to determine market valuations and correlations–or, in the words of John, the drivers of the rise in markets, their collapse, and their ongoing re-emergence (albeit one still vulnerable to failures and weak regulatory and private infrastructure).To continue reading, download this Foreword & Chapter 1.
