Description

From Wall Street to Main Street, John Brooks, longtime contributor to the New Yorker, brings to life in vivid fashion 12 classic and timeless tales of corporate and financial life in America.  

What do the $350 million Ford Motor Company disaster known as the Edsel, the fast and incredible rise of Xerox, and the unbelievable scandals at General Electric and Texas Gulf Sulphur have in common? Each is an example of how an iconic company was defined by a particular moment of fame or notoriety. These notable and fascinating accounts are as relevant today to understanding the intricacies of corporate life as they were when the events happened.  

Stories about Wall Street are infused with drama and adventure and reveal the machinations and volatile nature of the world of finance. John Brooks’ insightful reportage is so full of personality and critical detail that whether he is looking at the astounding market crash of 1962, the collapse of a well-known brokerage firm, or the bold attempt by American bankers to save the British pound, one gets the sense that history repeats itself.  

Five additional stories on equally fascinating subjects round out this wonderful collection that will both entertain and inform listeners. Business Adventures is truly financial journalism at its liveliest and best.

Good, but I expected better

From the 12 stories (or tales as the book says), only 4 of them are really interesting for a non heavy investor or lawyer. It was very interesting to read about Texas Gulf inside info, Ford failed launch, UK sterling devaluation and Xerox, but the other tales are just nice, when not boring. Based all the buzz around the book, I was expecting more.
