In praise of Charlie D. "Falloon's eloquent explication of the life of the legendary Charlie D delivers a good read while exposing that most under-publicized commodity of them all-a mega-trader with a low public profile whose superhuman trading abilities were exceeded by only one thing-the extended reach of his heart and soul." -Patrick H. Arbor Chairman, Chicago Board of Trade "Charlie D. is a tribute to the entrepreneurial spirit of Charlie D, whose legend still lives today on our trading floors. It also captures the essence of the men and women of Chicago who, working in a unique environment, through their trading provide economic benefits around the world." -Thomas R. Donovan President and Chief Executive Officer Chicago Board of Trade "Charlie D was unique-a poker-faced, unemotional, swashbuckling trader every other trader seeks to emulate. At the same time, he was also a model of trading integrity and one of the most generous people I have ever known. Whether trading or gambling, vacationing with family or go lfing with superstars, he did everything with a special flair and spirit. Charlie was truly larger than life."
-Thomas DeMark Author of The New Science of Technical Analysis and New Market Timing Techniques "Falloon captures the essence of the Charlie D I knew and rekindles my memories of a larger-than-life individual-how he laughed in the face of cancer, his generosity, and his sense of humor." -Mike Manning Rand Financial Services, Inc. "Charlie D was the most dynamic trader I've ever seen in my nineteen years in this business, and, beyond that, the best human being I've known." -Tom Fitzgerald TPF Trading
