An instant bestseller and classic since its release it has become the unparalleled point of reference for readers looking to understand American financial history. "Economic writings are seldom notable for their entertainment value, but this book is. Galbraith's prose has grace and wit, and he distills a good deal of sardonic fun from the whopping errors of the nation's oracles and the wondrous antics of the financial community." (The Atlantic Monthly).
