    With grace and wit, America's foremost economist examines the boom-and-bust that led to the stock market crash of 1929. Economic writings are rarely notable for their entertainment value, but this widely admired best-seller is the exception. Galbraith's light touch makes his expert analysis of America's greatest financial disaster a surprisingly engaging listen for anyone.

    Overall

    History and economics appeal to me so the selection of this book was a natural. Friedman's book "The World is Flat" and Arieley's book "Predictably Irrational" were most enjoyable. This book, however was not. Perhaps it is the language of a well respected academic that made understanding the material something that required more concentration than I could master as I drove the winding roads of rural West Virginia. On the whole, quite undigestable... boring.
