The Harder They Fall (2004)


Dr. Alfred Roelli, Switzerland

“Congratulations! I just reread your book “The Harder They Fall”. Your retrospective of the financial markets during the 80s and 90s captures the colorful and upbeat mood of the times vividly. Your lucid diagnosis and outlook in the last chapter has stood the test of time superbly and is still being played out.”

Dr. Magne Orgland, Switzerland

“honest, credible, well written and insightful… really good!”

Dr. R. Günther Thumann, United Kingdom

“This is an exciting book. It is wonderfully readable, full of historical detail and yet to the point, and – it is controversial. Signer is not just a sharp observer of our modern day casino world but he tells us how his personal life has been intertwined with the good and the bad of financial markets since the mid-1980s. And he is entirely honest about it. That is truly admirable.”

Claude Baumann,


“Authentic. Excellent. Thomas Signer uncovers startling parallels between the U.S. and Japan.”
