Banker with Brain Tumor Dedicates Final Months to Help Average Investors


"One of the most surprising aspects of the book is that we've had billionaires, hedge fund managers, sophisticated investors say, 'You know, I didn't know this or I didn't know that,'" Murray said, explaining that people will have to read the book to understand it all.

What's so extraordinary is that Murray felt such a burning desire to share this financial knowledge when he knew he had such little time left.
