“The most entertaining and insightful look at Wall Street since Liar's Poker.”'Paul Tudor Jones II*Welcome to the world of Martin “Buzzy” Schwartz, Champion Trader'the man whose nerves of steel and killer instinct in the canyons of Wall Street earned him the well-deserved name “Pit Bull.” This is the true story of how Schwartz became the best of the best, of the people and the places he discovered along the way, and the trader's tricks and techniques he used to make his millions. With great verve and style, Schwartz makes us a part of the action as we follow his career from his first gut-wrenching day trading options on the American Stock Exchange to his enormous successes trading futures, his pursuit of secretive foreign money for his hedge fund, his night trading bonds during the invasion of Iraq (during that first tumultuous night, he made $1.2 million by dawn), to the often painful yet valuable personal lessons he learned the hard way.It's a high-pressure, high-stakes world rarely seen by outsiders, and rarely written about by its inhabitants. Here, fortunes are made and lost in moments, and nobody brings it to life better than Marty Schwartz, the man Barron's calls “the best there is.” His stories are irresistible, and his candid accounts of his smart moves and blunders alike are priceless. Whether you want to play the markets yourself, wish to know how the buccaneer traders of Wall Street make'and lose'their money, or simply want to be entertained by a rollicking good story, Pit Bull is the audio you won't want to miss.Martin S.

From Kirkus Reviews:

A Wall Street trader exercises a rich man's prerogative and offers financial advice and his life story. ``See how much money I made!'' is the message. ``I'm pretty smart and damned tough, too.'' To be sure, Schwartz (``Buzzy'' to his pals) is the prototypical hard driver, a truly successful day trader, buying and selling in lightning strokes for his own account. His is a talent for exquisite market timing, a tricky game for even the most proficient professionals. His specialty is S&P futures, a technique using the marvel of leverage to greatly multiply the chances for gainor losson each tick. It requires an inordinate amount of research as well as stamina, acumen, and nerve, but it can be worth millions every year. The alternative, as Buzzy frets, is ``going tapioca.'' Buzzy dearly wanted his kids to say, `` `My daddy's the Champion Trader!' That was all I cared about,'' he admits. With success came Lutce lunches, expensive artworks, Armani suits, Bally alligator shoes, and other trophies. Schwartz essays a little false humility, but the book's evasive charm is based on chutzpah. In an effort to leverage with OPM (other people's money), the author established his own hedge funds until investors (the bastards) pestered him about their money. Don't be surprised to learn the result was heart disease. Now in Florida, trading again for himself, the quondam Champion Trader reveals, with some repetition, his story. It moves nicely, though, with a certain egomaniacal verve. An appendix gives the author's daily schedule (e.g, ``7:20-7:30 Clean out the plumbing''). His investment methodology is also appended, but only the most devoted professional will utilize this rigorous lesson. An archetypal text, true to life on the Street, destined to be discussed over drinks at trader hangouts after the market closesand better than going tapioca.
