The Book
From Wall Street to Main Street, John Brooks, longtime contributor to the New Yorker, brings to life in vivid fashion twelve classic and timeless tales of corporate and financial life in America. Each of these tales are an example of how an iconic company was defined by a particular moment of fame or notoriety. These notable and fascinating accounts are as relevant today to understanding the intricacies of corporate life as they were when the events happened.

What Glenn Hubbard says

While Brooks died in 1993, this recently rereleased collection of business stories from his New Yorker articles decades ago brings classic explanations of growth (Xerox Corp.’s early years) and poor decisions (Ford Motor Co.’s problematic launch of the Edsel) that should inform and captivate business executives and students of business alike.

    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.

About
The Book
The most persuasive and complete account yet of the 2007-10 crisis and the lessons it holds for us. It matches impressive analysis with no-holds-barred criticism and persuasive prescription for a more stable future. A book no one with an interest in global affairs will want to neglect.

What Glenn Hubbard says

Wolf’s book sets the crisis in the context of structural problems that set the stage for the crisis, many of which have not been mitigated (indeed some amplified) by policy hyperactivity in the wake of the crisis. While not all of the diagnoses and future policy suggestions ring true, this book will stand the test of time as an introduction to the complexity of problems that presaged the crisis.
