BURLINGAME, Calif. (AP) — Former Wall Street financial executive Gordon Murray, who co-authored the best-selling "The Investment Answer" after ceasing treatment for terminal brain cancer, has died. He was 60.

Publicist Jennifer Musico says Murray died at his Burlingame home on Saturday. He was diagnosed with glioblastoma, a type of brain cancer, in 2008.

Murray, a former managing director for Lehman Brothers and Credit Suisse First Boston, self-published "The Investment Answer" in August 2010 along with co-author and financial adviser Daniel Goldie.

The primer on financial investing became a best-seller after an article about Murray appeared in The New York Times in November.

Musico says the book has been acquired by Business Plus and will be published in hardcover on Jan. 25.
