John Brook’s Business Adventures captures, with surprising intricacy, some of the biggest stories of 1960s Wall Street. From how Ford got it all backwards with the Edsel to why General Electric faced an anti-trust lawsuit, Brooks is there to tell it as it happened in superb, no-nonsense prose. This timeless read which, unsurprisingly, is Warren Buffet and Bill Gates’ favorite business book, will engross any economic history enthusiast to the very end.
