The Capitalist Spirit: How Each and Every One of Us Can Make A Giant Difference in Our Fast-Changing World by Yale Hirsch, William J. O'Neil

Praise for The Capitalist Spirit

"This mind-bogglingly wonderful compilation is not only phenomenal overall but has dozens of snippets that by themselves are worth many times the book's price to anyone—particularly the tables in the back. I loved 'Wonders of the Human Body' and 'Puns to Put a Smile on Your Face.'"
—Ken Fisher, founder and CEO, Fisher Investments, Forbes' Portfolio Strategy Columnist, and New York Times bestselling author of How to Smell a Rat: The Five Signs of Financial Fraud

"In the continuing spirit of his enormously influential Stock Trader's Almanac, Yale Hirsch has assembled a fascinating cornucopia of insightful, provocative, and endlessly entertaining information and ideas. Whether it's his collection of inimitable witticisms by the likes of George Burns or Yogi Berra, or his wide-ranging compilation of practical advice on how to make a difference with one's life and in the world more generally, Hirsch provides us with an essential guide for dramatically increased wisdom and productivity."
—Dr. Frank J. Sulloway, former MacArthur Fellow and author of Born to Rebel: Birth Order, Family Dynamics, and Creative Lives

"Yale Hirsch puts together seemingly disparate things and comes up with a celebration of the human spirit that is uniquely his own. He combines wonder at science and art with a hard-headed look at economics and finance—a rare way of looking at lemons and conjuring up lemonade. And he can dance, too. We get only a few Renaissance men in each generation—don't miss this one."
—Barbara Rockefeller, President, Rockefeller Treasury Services,, and author of Technical Analysis For Dummies

"No one understands the rhythms of markets better than Yale Hirsch. Stock Trader's Almanac has been the bible for Wall Street trading desks for decades. The Capitalist Spirit brings that same wisdom and experience to a brand new audience of young people. Any student who wants to understand capitalism and markets but also make a difference in the world, this is the book for you!"
—Barry Ritholtz, CEO and Director of Equity Research at FusionIQ, and author of Bailout Nation

"Yale Hirsch's amazingly eclectic book is packed full of valuable information, wisdom, humor, and inspiration. It's a fascinating read."
—Myron Kandel, Founding Financial Editor, CNN
