    One thought on “Bernard Baruch”

    1. James Grant captures the scale of the life of this legend of Wall Street. After reading the book, I can attest to the fact that the life of Bernard Baruch was grand to say the least. He was a self-made millionaire at a time when that was a truly rare thing to achieve. But that was just the beginning, as Baruch went on to demonstrate a consistency as a exceptionally shrewd stock trader, venture capitalist and investor. But his successes on Wall Street were only one part of this incredible story. [...]

    2. This was an interesting book about a man that I not heard of before in regards to finance and his role in America's history. It was lengthy, and at times tailored for the fan of Baruch. In the end, I would recommend it to others to see how finance, politics, society and world events all are interwoven in our lives.

    3. Interesting What a wild ride in the stock market. From good to bad to good etc. Great info on the 1929 crash.

    4. Since I was invited to give a lecture at Bernard Baruch College, I decided to read a book about the man it was named after. This work gives a general overview of his life, overtly concentrating on the "public" aspect of his actions as speculator and as government official and influential supporter of the Democratic party. The author steers clear of Baruch's well-known philandering and his poor relations with his wife and children on the rather lame grounds that a lot of it is hearsay made a fort [...]

    5. A well written book about an interesting person. The author has a challenging task trying to capture the personality of a dynamic figure, both on Wall Street and in public service. However, Baruch was not a fluid letter writer or speech maker, so his essence has to be pieced together from other sources. His influence was his financial insights, that he might have acted upon, but did not document, and his friendships with powerful figures.The author's (a noted economist and journalist) stated foc [...]

    6. This is a recommendable and very good bio. Although there are other bios of Baruch, none of which I happen to have read, James Grant is an excellent writer who also possesses considerable financial acumen (Barron's fixture and author of the long-running Grant's Interest Rate Observer). One niggling (if not trivial) point: there are numerous puzzling spelling errors, which seems to indicate a lack of careful editing.

    7. This is more about the financial times of a truly great American than about his personal life and history. Enjoyed the read about a little know but extremely influential American. Very little detail on his political and public life. I would have enjoyed reading more in depth about this man. This book could have easily turned in a 1000 page book.

    8. Kind of a dry, boring book. BMB seems to have made most of his money from insider trading in the stock market, than anything else. I did enjoy the political history lesson though.
