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.

Very Interesting and Entertaining

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.
