Descrizione del libro:

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.

L'autore:

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.
