    " Some incredible parallels to the 2008 financial crisis. From bubble analysis to income inequality to corporate corruption and securities deregulation. Only the names have changed. "

    " Informative but not boring. "

    " I really wish that recent history was nothing like the history of the crash of 1929. But it is. The best thing about reading this book today is that its history is far enough in the past that we can look at it without all of the emotion that we feel about today's economic situation. "

    " This is a surprisingly breezy read in parts; Galbraith has a dry as a post yet dusts in a little gallows humor for amusement. it is a pretty solid education in the historical antecedents of the current economic struggle and the strain that the "bubble" puts on an economy. "
