My new book, "RICHER, WISER, HAPPIER: HOW THE WORLD'S GREATEST INVESTORS WIN IN MARKETS AND LIFE," was published by Scribner, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, on April 20, 2021. The international rights have been sold in dozens of countries, including the UK and Commonwealth, France, Spain, Germany and Switzerland, Turkey, Russia, Estonia, China, India, South Korea, Thailand, Hong Kong and Taiwan, Brazil, and Israel. The book is currently being translated into 13 languages. I've also collaborated on several books as a ghostwriter/coauthor, including a financial book that became a No. 1 New York Times Best Seller and No. 1 Wall Street Journal Best Seller in 2017. I previously wrote and edited "The Great Minds of Investing," a 2015 book featuring many legendary investors. Before that, I worked closely with the renowned hedge fund manager Guy Spier to help him write his 2014 memoir, "The Education of a Value Investor," which Forbes called "the most interesting investment book this year."
