Why do otherwise intelligent individuals form seething masses of idiocy when they engage in collective action? Why do financially sensible people jump lemming-like into hare-brained speculative frenzies--only to jump broker-like out of windows...

Interesting to read!
480 pages of manias, financial bubbles, runaway enthusiasm, mass disillusion and wildly optimistic projections and forecasts is a pretty challenging read.

However, here's a book thats entertaining as well as informative.

The book contains not only useful information, but also numerous interesting anecdotes.

A Very Enjoyable Read
A very entertaining read about mass delusions in history. It covers up to 1840 (when it was written!) yet is surprisingly relevant to today. Market style boom-bust cycles, like the dutch tulip mania are covered in a chapter on financial delusions.

History repeats itself
If we don't learn from our mistakes we don't learn. This book is brilliantly researched and describes the mania of bubbles and the craziness that happens time and again.

Why do you need to read Extraordinary Popular Delusions and The Madness of Crowds? Because we have to learn from other's mistakes so we aren't caught in the madness and can not only save our portfolio but hopefully profit from it. These bubbles happen over and over again at all levels. Property, tech stocks, commodities...and penny stocks!

historical manias explained
i very much enjoyed the first three chapters - style of writing and subject matter. i think the book is well-researched. but i felt like i was slogging through the rest of it because the style of writing changed to chapters by subject matter. i wished that he would have picked just a couple of instances out and wrote about them for each subject. i wanted to know more about the people and events but they were only presented in a paragraph or a page.

history is very entertaining because people have been caught up in superstition. people struggled with poverty, prejudice, superstition.

i was particularly taken with the john law story about how paper money became popular. royalty viewed it as a solution to the economic woes of the government. print more and everyone will be happy, except when too much money was printed and it became worthless. this story is a play or a musical waiting to happen.

Becuase of Benard Baruch and Jesse Livermore
I bought it because it is the favorite book of Bernard Baruch and Jesse Livermore, both were great trader in their own right. The behavior theory in this book is great, especially for trading.

The Classic Bubble Book
As a financial historian, I loved this book. I've used excerpts from this book for financial history classes that I have taught. If you think that dot com stocks were the first big bubble, then you need to read this book.

bubbles and mania
Hard to read book, didn't really learn all that much but it was well researched, talking about some of the bubbles and mania that existed in the past like the tulip and South Seas bubbles. The story John Law and the French markets after a manic period was very interesting. This book does help today's trader/investor with better seeing the herd mentality that often exists in market trends, although not to as large a scale.
