Your survival guide to the Hades of Wall Street

The Devil’s Financial Dictionary skewers the plutocrats and bureaucrats who gave us exploding mortgages, freakish risks, and banks too big to fail. It distills the complexities, absurdities, and pomposities of Wall Street into plain truths and aphorisms anyone can understand.

An indispensable survival guide to the hostile wilderness of today’s financial markets, The Devil’s Financial Dictionary delivers practical insights with a scorpion’s sting. It cuts through the fads and fakery of Wall Street and clears a safe path for investors between euphoria and despair.

Staying out of financial purgatory has never been this fun.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Part social commentary, part instruction manual, Zweig’s book is must-reading for anyone who presumes or desires to understand the investment world…Like the book in which they’re contained, each of Zweig’s entries is pointed, witty, and revealing of important and useful truths. The Devil himself, a.k.a., [Ambrose] Bierce, would be proud.”

    Time

  • “The perfect stocking stuffer for anyone remotely interested in finance.”

    Business Insider

  • “This is the most amusing presentation of the principles of finance that I have ever seen.”

    Robert J. Shiller, author of Irrational Exuberance

  • “This satirical critique of what passes for wisdom on Wall Street belongs on the bookshelf of every serious investor.”

    Burton G. Malkiel, author of A Random Walk down Wall Street

  • “Jason Zweig, one of the great truth-tellers in financial journalism, is the spiritual heir to Ambrose Bierce, one of the great satirists in American letters. Both use piercing wit to reveal important truths.”

    Gary Belsky, coauthor of Why Smart People Make Big Money Mistakes and How to Correct Them

  • “The Devil’s Financial Dictionary, n. A compendium of financial jargon observed to induce in its readers nearly continuous spasms of raucous laughter. Has also been known to produce near-fatal episodes of cognitive dissonance in brokers, advisors, and money managers, who should consume its contents with care. Normal individuals, in contrast, may incur a deepening of financial wisdom, a fattening of the wallet, and an uncontrollable urge to steal entire passages for later use.”

    William J. Bernstein, author of The Four Pillars of Investing
