Jeff Yastine thinks of himself as an ex-financial journalist who managed to interview most of the world’s stock market entrepreneurs, experts, and financiers. He had an opportunity to interview some of the world’s most famous people in business, finance, and economics.

He also interviewed several board members of Federal Reserve like Rivlin Alice and various members of Congress, senators, and governors.
He started involving himself with the stock market in 1987 with a market crash. By that time he was only twenty-three years and an employee of NBC TV station and therefore he did not own any stock at all. However, the crash in the market left an unsettled worry and fear in the market. The crash inspired his interests to learn the value creation and how one could destroy it depending on the expectations and sentiments of the investors. Through the process, he learned a lot of lessons and absorbed many mantras he received from the people he interviewed while working with PBS TV station. The advice he took from them enabled him to become a very successful investor.
