"The Go-Go Years is a fine book, a small classic in the long history of financial insanity."--John Kenneth Galbraith["Brooks tells the story of that doomed decade [1960s] in the market and a fine moralist tale it is." --Time magazine[The sixties was a decade of recklessness and free-spirited individuals and one of Wall Street's most speculative eras. They were years of growth and performance, gunslingers, the youth revolution, mutual funds, new-issue stocks, creative accounting, Chinese money, and the conglomerates. In this tumultuous environment, the multitudes of small investors thrived and multiplied, only to fall in the devastating market crashes of the 1970s. Brooks' hallmark writing style combines high-quality reportage with an engaging, adventurous narrative that reads like a well-crafted work of fiction . . . only every word of it is true. * The go-go growth stocks of the '60s are frequently compared to the Internet stock surge of the '90s
