From the $350 million Ford Motor Company disaster (otherwise known as the Edsel) and the unbelievable scandals at GE and Texas Gulf Sulphur, to the astonishingly quick rise of Xerox and the market crash of 1962, Brooks discusses 12 fascinating and notable accounts in corporate history, proving that they are still relevant today to understanding corporate culture and life. Because these Wall Street stories are naturally infused with drama and adventure, Brooks is able to bring to light the volatile nature and mechanisms of the world of finance in an incredibly dynamic way. History repeats itself. Financial corporate history is no different.

Editorial Reviews “John Brooks is an unbelievable business writer. He’s probably my favorite, and it’s too bad so many people haven’t had a chance to hear about him and the great work he did. . . . You can read this book today and learn a lot. . . . The rules of running a great business—value creation—are unchanged, and Brooks took some very dramatic examples that are particularly fun and interesting and instructive.” —Bill Gates

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 inGolconda, 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.
