Review:

"[Brooks] provides the early version of what we think of as Malcolm Gladwell-style or Freakonomics-style lessons. . . . But Brooks features another trait that modern business writers, whether James Stewart, Malcolm Gladwell, or Michael Lewis, do not. Brooks is truly willing to give up his own views to get inside the mind of all his subjects." --National Review

"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." --Bill Gates, The Wall Street Journal

"The prose is superb. Reading Brooks is a supreme pleasure. His writing turns potentially eye-glazing topics (e.g., price-fixing scandals in the industrial electronics market) into rollicking narratives. He's also funny. . . . He tells entertaining stories replete with richly drawn characters, setting them during heightened moments within the world of commerce." --Slate


Book Description:

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.
