What is included with this book?


Bernard Baruch was a self-made millionaire, legendary stock trader, and venture investor. For most of the first half of the 20th century, he epitomized the good side of Wall Street in the public mind. Celebrated as Adviser to Presidents and The Park Bench Statesman, he also became known as The Man Who Sold out before the Crash. James Grant's much praised biography draws on a wealth of previously untapped material.
