Shut Up and Keep Talking: Lessons on Life and Investing from the Floor of the New York Stock Exchange by Bob Pisani

Shut Up and Keep Talking, is a magnificent compendium of captivating stories that reveal what he has learned about life and investing through the most incredible forum of all: a seat in the epicentre of capitalism, the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.

Part investment primer, part stories of meeting the great and the good such as Fidel Castro, Robert Downey Jr., Walter Cronkite, Aretha Franklin, Barry Manilow and Jack Ma to name but six, Shut Up and Keep Talking also delves into the structure of markets.

Bob elegantly describes how the investment world has changed, the almost total transition of trading from floor to screen, the collapse in fees for many investment products and services most notably via index funds, making “Shut Up and Keep Talking” a unique memoir from CNBC’s voice on the NYSE floor for over 25 years.
