The Go-Go Years "The Go-Go Years is not to be read in the usual manner ofWall Street classics. You do not read this book to see our presentsituation reenacted in the past, with only the names changed. Youread it because it is a wonderful description of the way thingswere in a different time and place." --From the Foreword by Michael Lewis The Go-Go Years is the harrowing and humorous story ofthe growth stocks of the 1960s and how their meteoric rise caused amultitude of small investors to thrive until the devastating marketcrashes in the 1970s. It was a time when greed drove the market andfast money was being made and lost as the "go-go" stocks surged andplunged. Included are the stories of such high-profilepersonalities as H. Ross Perot who lost $450 million in one day,Saul Steinberg's attempt to take over Chemical Bank, and the fallof America's "Last Gatsby," Eddie Gilbert. Praise for The Go-Go Years "Those for whom the stock market is mostly a spectator sportwill relish the book's verve, color, and memorableone-liners." --New York Review of Books "Please don't take The Go-Go Years too much for granted:as effortlessly as it seems to fly, it is nonetheless an unusuallycomplex and thoughtful work of social history." --New York Times "Brooks's great contribution is his synthesis of all theelements that made the 1960s the most volatile in Wall Streethistory . and making so much material easily digestible for theuninitiated." --Publishers Weekly "Brooks ... is about the only writer around who combines athorough knowledge of finance with the ability to perceive behindthe dance of numbers 'high, pure, moral melodrama on the themes ofpossession, domination, and belonging.'" --Time

PLEASE NOTE: This is a summary of the book and NOT the original book. Business Adventures by John Brooks - A 30-Minute Instaread Summary: Twelve Classic Tales from the World of Wall Street Inside this Instaread Summary: • Overview of the entire book • Introduction to the important people in the book • Summary and analysis of all the chapters in the book • Key Takeaways of the book • A Reader's Perspective Preview of this summary: Chapter 1 The concept of the stock market was invented in Amsterdam in 1611, as chronicled in a book published in 1688 by stock trader Joseph de la Vega.

Even back then, de la Vega found that brokers were creative in trying to find reasons for why stocks behave the way they do. The mini-stock market crash that took place on May 28, 1962, did not last long, but offers some fascinating insight into the way the market works. The causes of the crash, at the time the worst since 1929, remain somewhat elusive. One possibility was individual investors, particularly wealthy investors not connected to the securities business. However, it also appeared to be the large number of rural, female and foreign investors who had been playing the market with borrowed money and were forced to pay on margin calls. There were also problems related to the mechanical delay in recording and reporting trades via the ticker due to the sheer volume of transactions.
