Personal life[edit]

He and his father taught a course on real estate development at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania from 1987 to 1992.[1]

He co-wrote a book with his father called How to be a Successful Developer.[1]

Pisani enjoys jazz.[2] For over 30 years, he has collected original rock concert posters.[3]

Criticism by Jim Cramer[edit]

In December 2006, Mad Money host Jim Cramer used Pisani as an example of an easily manipulated reporter used by hedge fund managers to spread false statements about a company in order to illegally drive the stock price down. Cramer said, "It’s really important to get the Pisanis of the world and people talking about it as if there is something wrong...".[4][5] Cramer later apologized to Pisani.[6]
