Overview

With his singular gift for turning complex financial events into eminently readable stories, Roger Lowenstein lays bare the labyrinthine events of the manic and tumultuous 1990s. In an enthralling narrative, he ties together all of the characters of the dot-com bubble and offers a unique portrait of the culture of the era. Just as John Kenneth Galbraith’s The Great Crash was a defining text of the Great Depression, Lowenstein’s Origins of the Crash is destined to be the book that will frame our understanding of the 1990s.

Praise

“The perfect epitaph to an era of monumental avarice and folly on Wall Street. This is financial history at its best.” —Ron Chernow

“A crucial account of an era of excess and folly…riveting…will only seem fresher with time.” —BusinessWeek
