Product description

Review

"More than two decades after Warren [Buffett] lent it to me--and more than four decades after it was first published--"Business Adventures" remains the best business book I've ever read . . . Brooks's deeper insights about business are just as relevant today as they were back then." --Bill Gates, "The Wall Street Journal""The prose is superb. Reading Brooks is a supreme pleasure. His writing turns potentially eye-glazing topics (e.g., price-fixing scandals in the industrial electronics market) into rollicking narratives. He's also funny. . . . He tells entertaining stories replete with richly drawn characters, setting them during heightened moments within the world of commerce." --"Slate"

About the Author

John Brooks (1920-1993) was an award-winning writer best known for his contributions to the New Yorker as a financial journalist. He was also the author of ten nonfiction books on business and finance, a number of which were critically acclaimed works examining Wall Street and the corporate world. His books Once in Golconda, The Go-Go Years, and Business Adventures have endured as classics. Although he is remembered primarily for his writings on financial topics, Brooks published three novels and wrote book reviews for Harper's Magazine and the New York Times Book Review.
