Executives, stock analysts, and journalists often use their connections with each other to influence the public perception of stocks, says respected media journalist Kurtz, who's made a career of taking aim at attempts to manipulate press coverage. He knows everyone who is anyone in these realms, and the stories he tells are woven together with great skill. There's no moralizing or hand-wringing, just interesting storytelling about the greed and hubris that are common to Wall Street. Delivered with controlled enthusiasm by the author (especially when talking about his favorite TV pundit, Jim Cramer), this program is interesting, alarming, and essential listening for every investor.
