About the author (2012)

Edwin Lefevre (1871-1943) was an American journalist, author, and statesman most noted for his writing on Wall Street. Appointed an Ambassador of the United States by President Howard Taft in 1909, he served in posts in a number of countries, including Italy, France, and Spain. At the end of his diplomatic career in 1913, Lefevre returned to his home in Vermont where he resumed his literary work, writing novels and contributing short stories for magazines such as "The Saturday Evening Post" and "McClure's".

Roger Lowenstein, author of the bestselling Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist, reported for The Wall Street Journal for over a decade and wrote the stock-market column "Heard on the Street" from 1989 to 1991 and the "Intrinsic Value" column from 1995 to 1997. He now writes a column in SmartMoney magazine and has written for The New York Times and The New Republic, among other publications. He has three children and lives in Westfield, New Jersey.
