Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds and Confusion De Confusiones

Martin S. Fridson

Exploring the sometimes hilarious, sometimes devastating impact of crowd behavior and trading trickery on the financial markets, this book brilliantly combines two all-time investment classics. Extraordinary Popular Delusions and Confusion de Confusiones take us from Tulipmania in 1634-when tulips actually traded at a higher price than gold-to the South Sea "bubble" of 1720, and beyond. Securities analyst and author Martin Fridson guides you on a quirky, entertaining, and intriguing journey back through time. Chosen by the Financial Times as Two of the Ten Best Books Ever Written on Investment
