Well written book on the stock market crash of October, 1929. Numerous biographies of colorful, historical characters, heavily involved in Wall Street.

Well written book on the stock market crash of October, 1929. Their loves, their losses. Their eccentricities. The authors of the Day the Bubble Burst, benefiting from hindsight, did a very credible job of compiling the events and attitudes of the late 20s that led to the precipitous decline in the price of stocks. The effects of that downturn subsequently continued for years. Cutting to the chase, one can easily infer and conclude that the cause of the crash was greed.

This book was published in 1979, fifty years after the great stock market Crash of 1929. The author was able to track down and interview people involved with the Crash, or their direct family members--something that's impossible to do today. As such, it goes into a level of detail and accuracy that makes for a fascinating read. This is not some dry analysis of the Crash; rather, the author follows major and minor players from 1928 through the Crash, then wraps up all the post-Crash stories in the final chapter.

His description of Black Tuesday, gathered from someone who was actually on floor of the New York Stock Exchange that day, is mind-boggling.

"The Day the Bubble Burst" gives a vivid picture of what investors, stock brokers, and the stock market were like in the late '20s. Because of the Crash and its aftermath, there are now laws and regulations that prohibit much of what was then considered smart business.

I highly recommend this book.

This was a very interesting story of the events leading up to the great stock market crash in 1929 and how various people acted leading up to the great crash. Also it tells how the stock market crash impacted both those who helped bring it about as well as some of those innocent people who lost their savings through bank failures.
Because there were so many people mentioned in the book, and jumping around in the telling of the stories of all those involved, it was a struggle for me to remember who some of the people were.
It was amusing to me that years after the great crash, many people thought that a great stock market collapse could not happen again. With all the new laws enacted in order to correct the excesses leading up to the 1929 crash, as late as 1979 it was felt that such an event could not happen again. and yet in 2008 we again experienced a severe economic decline and a major drop in the stock market as a result of the greed on the part of a segment of the American populace.

The crash of 1929 resulted from the lack of oversight. Not one person or organization, but a lack of controls when greed is everywhere. This history should be consulted by those who feel that less government is better than more. Business cannot be trusted to do the right thing. Government with a social conscience is needed to balance capitalism and social responsibility.

Warning! Once you begin this book, you may not be able to put it down! From the father's savings account for his children to the shoeshine man's tips, to the bankers' manipulation of funds and the tellers' gambling with depositors' funds, everyone heads for destruction and the reader can only watch, helplessly, as the countdown to October 29 continues. Thomas did the impossible. He made the financial world exciting for me.

Lots of detail and interesting stories. It is clear he did a tremendous amount of research. He could of shortened it by a good 25 percent and been just as effective. The book ends t 78% and the rest is appendix and bibliography. Still despite the length he is a very good writer and it is a real eye-opener as to how the crash ocurred and what was going on at the time.

I find people's stories interesting and so really liked this book. If you are looking for more technical reasons for the crash you will have to read another book. This one gives you insight into how often ordinary folks got caught up in reckless investing with money they did not have and could not afford to lose. There is a cautionary tale for all of us. The people profiled here were both Wall Street brokers and middle-America bankers and business people - ordinary folks who just got carried away and paid a terrible price for greed.

The research into the individual stories and actions is extraordinary. The chilling effect of this meticulously researched book poses the question, could this happen again? It also puts names and faces and personal stories about the contributors to the bubble burst for the reader to decide whether their actions were crimes of commission it omission?
Historical events have always interested me.

This is a really wonderful book. Certainly up there with the best I have ever read. It contains everything a great thriller should... shady characters, smooth operators, high fliers, markets experts, good guys and bad guys and, of course, the humble hopefuls... all in it waiting for their ship to steam in.

And when it didn't... millions of lives were wrecked.

The research to the tragedy is immaculate. While some of the wealthy survived, many didn't, but the outcome for the little fellows, as set out in the Epilogue, was catastrophic and, at times, tear-jerking even though the drama played itself out nearly eighty years ago.

It is difficult to believe that a report on investing and banking could develop at such a frenetic pace but, in truth, I simply could not put it down. It is written in such a way that the pace at which critical events occurred gives the impression of a marathon being run at a sprint.

I knew, of course, that the crash came on 29 October 1929 and that it was a prime factor contributing to the great depression that followed. But that is all I knew.

Now I know why it happened... Who the leading players were... Who won and who lost... And why it is unlikely to happen again.

Or will it?

This book answers all the questions.

It is a great buy.
