Business Adventures by John Brooks is an outstanding book. I read it for no better reason than Bill Gates said that it was his favourite business book.
It was a pleasure reading the book. It comprises a number of stories that focus on a wide gamut of areas e.g., anti-trust, currency, insider trading, launching a new product, stock market volatility, etc. What makes the book great to read are:
1. One reads real stories. Issues come out as the story progresses
2. The depth and width of the issues is outstanding
3. The author has tremendous insights into the business
4. The stories are easy to read and comprehend
Though the stories are old, but they continue to be relevant. As the author says, the behaviour of humans in stock markets was similar in the 17th century also....................
