"The Go-Go Years is not to be read in the usual manner of Wall Street classics. You do not read this book to see our present situation reenacted in the past, with only the names changed. You read it because it is a wonderful description of the way things were in a different time and place."
-From the Fewd by Michael Lewis
The Go-Go Years is the harrowing and humous sty of the growth stocks of the 1960s and how their meteic rise caused a multitude of small invests to thrive until the devastating market crashes in the 1970s. It was a time when greed drove the market and fast money was being made and lost as the "go-go" stocks surged and plunged. Included are the sties of such high-profile personalities as H. Ross Perot, who lost $450 million in one day; Saul Steinberg's attempt to take over Chemical Bank; and the fall of America's "Last Gatsby", Eddie Gilbert.

"Please don't take The Go-Go Years too much f granted: As efftlessly as it seems to fly, it is nonetheless an unusually complex and thoughtful wk of social histy." (New Yk Times)
"Brooks' great contribution is his synthesis of all the elements that made the 1960s the most volatile in Wall Street histy. And making so much material easily digestible f the uninitiated." (Publishers Weekly)
