The first year of The Weekly List has been published in a book as The List: A Week-by-Week Reckoning of Trump’s First Year. Before turning to advocacy, Siskind was an executive on Wall Street, working as a managing director at Wasserstein Perella and as partner and trade director at Morgan Stanley and Imperial Capital.
