A detailed guide to financial-market performance during financial crises.
With the financial markets seemingly careening from one crisis to another, it's vital for today's investors and traders to have a historical perspective on market performance during times of great turmoil. In this audiobook Tim Knight provides an exhaustive analysis of financial market behavior prior, during, and following tumultuous events since 1600.
Making copious use of charts and basic technical analysis, Knight demonstrates how external shocks tend to create extreme reactions in the financial markets and how these predictable reactions provide opportunities for investors and traders to profit. Knight traverses five centuries of financial market history, from Tulipmania in the 1600s to the contemporary sovereign debt crisis. He looks at each event from the prism of the financial markets, examining the market climate prior to the event, during the event, and following the event.
If you're looking for a better way to make it today's dynamic markets, look no further than this timely book.
Well written. Author narrated so enthusiasm is there but not a pro reader. I will listen to it again one day. Current spring 2015

Would you listen to Panic, Prosperity, and Progress again? Why?
I found this book very interesting and well put together. Considering the topic I was surprised to find that I couldn't wait to hear what happens next. This was far more entertaining than I thought it would be. I look forward to listening to this book again in the future.
