This book comes with the details of 12 critical moments in American industry, including the rise of Xerox, Piggly Wiggly, the Ford Edsel Fiasco, and the GE and Texas Gulf Sulphur scandals. Business adventures teaches lessons about people how they act, what makes them thrive and flounder. Business Adventure lessons are about human nature in the context of business and though technologies and best practices change, people never do. Gates write about this amazing business book that “Brook wrote long articles that frame an issue, explore it in depth, introduce a few compelling characters, and show how things went for them. Unlike a lot of today’s business writers, Brooks didn’t boil his work down into pat how to lessons or simplistic explanations for success”. Brook wrote in his book about 1962 flash crash. He said that humans are basically emotional, irrational beings. Over the course of only three days, fear and panic led the stock market to plummet $20 billion only to boomerang back up a day later. Another lesson that was discussed in this book was a lesson from the Ford Edsel Fiasco that pay close attention to your market. Customer’s wishes can change very quickly and it is important to keep a finger on the collective pulse. It also collects a lesson from the Federal income tax system and the best solution is to scrap it. Over the years, the US tax system became so convoluted, corrupt and loophole laden that it now encourages inefficiency. This book also covers the lesson from the Texas Gulf case of 1959. When Texas Gulf executives found out about mineral rich ground the company had just struck, they slowly began buying up stock shares and telling their families to follow suit.
