Can a smart money manager working from the outside revive a bankrupt company with his clients' massive capital and a sharp management agenda? Are ""value"" stocks better than ""growth"" stocks? Can anyone ""beat the market""? Is volatility okay? What about the role of the Internet in trading? These and other questions vital to stock market investors are aired in this remarkable series of interviews with investment industry leaders by Tanous, whose firm, Lynx Investment Advisory, finds money managers for billion-dollar clients. The author brings out the financial background, strategy and tactics of such mutual-fund miracle men as Fidelity Magellan's Peter Lynch (""what happens to the company... happens to the stock""); ""momentum"" trader Richard Driehaus (""look for earnings surprises"") and ""Super Mario"" Gabelli, who champions ""intrinsic private market value."" Other big-name trader/managers also speak out freely here. In closing, the author constructs sample ""portfolios"" of guru-managed mutual funds for the reader's consideration. $50,000 ad/promo; author tour. (Feb.)
