Hailed as a business classic by the likes of Bill Gates and Warren Buffett and widely acknowledged as a forerunner to the writing of Michael Lewis, BUSINESS ADVENTURES is an insightful and gripping look at corporate and financial life in America.

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.

Reviews

'All the work of Michael Lewis comes directly from this.' - New Yorker'A masterful storyteller ... Brooks's work is a great reminder that the rules for running a strong business and creating value haven't changed. For one thing, there's an essential human factor in every business endeavor. It doesn't matter if you have a perfect product, production plan and marketing pitch; you'll still need the right people to lead and implement those plans.' - Wall Street Journal'The Michael Lewis of his day.' - New York TimesA supreme pleasure ... Brooks is the direct literary ancestor of Michael Lewis. - Slate'Brooks ... is about the only writer around who combines a thorough knowledge of finance with the ability to perceive behind the dance of numbers 'high, pure, moral melodrama on the themes of possession, domination, and belonging.' - Time'Rare pro-business portraiture which will stand up among the best financial journalism.' - Kirkus'Brooks's great contribution is his synthesis of all the elements that made the 1960s the most volatile in Wall Street history . and making so much material easily digestible for the uninitiated.' - Publishers Weekly
