Business Adventures: Twelve Classic Tales from the World of Wall Street by John Brooks

Business Adventures comprises twelve riveting case studies of key developments in business, economics and finance. While they concern events and companies you may never have heard of, the case studies are highly entertaining and the lessons learned from them are still applicable today.
