    Decent review of some of the great investors and their trials and tribulations.

    The voice is a bit annoying though

    It is commonly believed that the Great Depression that began in 1929 resulted from a confluence of events beyond any one person's or government's control. In fact, as Liaquat Ahamed reveals, it was the decisions made by a small number of central bankers that were the primary cause of the economic meltdown, the effects of which set the stage for World War II and reverberated for decades.

    Toru says: "interesting insight into interwar period!"
    "history textbook and biography rolled into 1"
    Overall

    This book is basically a history textbook, a few chapters of a macroeconomics textbook, and 4 biographies rolled into 1.

    It spends more time talking about politics and the outward appearances of the characters rather than getting to the punchline. It's very long and long winded.

    The book covers 1914 to 1944. It goes through and attempts to link together the policies, events, and mistakes throughout the time frame. It covers WW2, Gold Standard, etc.

    From one of the world's top investing experts, and the best-selling author of Stocks for the Long Run, comes a book that challenges certain conventional wisdom. Based on groundbreaking research, The Future for Investors makes the case that as an investor you are better off with old, reliable companies, many of whose products have not changed for years.

    Thomas says: "Definately worth reading if you invest in equities"
    "Insightful and well written"
    Overall

    Great book about investing that turns many commonly held beliefs on their heads. Will help you take take a different look about the market and the global economy.
