Leland Faust, who has spent more than 30 years as a financial adviser to hundreds of athletes, has written a book that takes on Wall Street practices.

“A Capitalist’s Lament: How Wall Street Is Fleecing You and Ruining America,” published by Skyhorse Publishing, will be available online and in bookstores today.

“I wrote the book to share my views and experiences with the public,” said the usually press-shy Faust. “The public needs to know what is really going on with our financial system so its members can protect themselves from being taken advantage of. Also, we need to change some public policies, and the book explains why.”

Dallas-based literary agent Jan Miller represented Faust in the deal.
