Gordon Murray, a former Wall Street financial executive who co-authored the best-selling "The Investment Answer" after ceasing treatment for terminal brain cancer, has died. He was 60.

Murray died Saturday at his home in Burlingame, Calif., according to publicist Jennifer Musico. 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.
