"The economy seems to be spinning out of control, and no one really knows how to bring it under control. 'Reins of Hysteria' is a guide for investors to flourish when the world burns. Peirce Stern writes with a dark humor on the matter as he advises readers to piece together their own skills and ideas to make the most of their finances for the future in a world that seems driven to see you fail. 'Reins of Hysteria' is a strong pick for personal finance and investment collections, highly recommended." - The Midwest Book Review
"Stern has a background in comedic writing as well as in business, and he combines both to keep the subject—the global financial system—enjoyable, and to uncover its inner workings. Thus, the distinctive feature of Reins of Hysteria is that it is extremely readable, despite the often complex subject matter. When an overload of information threatens to cloud his message, Stern
pulls back on the throttle and uses humor to keep the reader engaged. For example, he warns of the dangers of complex options, mentioning stochastic calculus and the options pricing algorithm, then follows with a lighthearted segue to the next chapter: 'And anyhow, if you wanted to risk losing all of your money, swaps are really the best way to go.'" - Foreword Clarion Review (Four Stars out of Five)
