John Brooks, a long time writer for the New Yorker, relates twelve stories of the corporate and financial life in his book “Business Adventures: Twelve Classic Tales from the World of Wall Street.”

Each story tells of a major company that faced an extreme situation, such as the rapid rise of Xerox, a shocking scandal at General Electric and Ford Motor Company’s $350 million mistake. These events offer a glimpse into the exciting and intricate realm of corporate life. Brooks offers a historical look at the events while suggesting ways in which to prevent history from repeating itself.
