Overview

After receiving Business Adventures as a gift from Warren Buffett, Bill Gates considers it to be his favorite book.

What would you say the most influential business events have been throughout the last century? Do you think of the ugliest car to launch as one? Or maybe you consider the fall of the Piggly Wiggly supermarket chain to be of significance?

Whether you've heard of them or not, these are among the most meaningful recent business happenings. Developments like these put an end to insider trading and help secure people's right to work wherever they want.

These are just a few of the important lessons learned in John Brooks's Business Adventures: Twelve Classic Tales from the World of Wall Street.
