Using a more literary and descriptive style, he came up with a new view. He argued that markets are unstable precisely because investors act irrationally when they get swept along on a tide of optimism or despair. This makes the financial markets susceptible to crises, and at times they are in need of radical intervention. Kindleberger's historical examples of financial crashes worldwide show a distinct pattern, leading him to the conclusion that the world needs a single, central body to stabilize global markets at their most fragile moments.
The fact that Kindleberger's book is now in its seventh edition shows just how popular his ideas have become, and how they are still relevant today. Manias, Panics, and Crashes is essential listening for anyone who wants to understand the market cycle of boom and bust.

This is a "cliff notes' version of the book
repetitive, doesn't give much information. does give you the highlights, somewhat, but there's not enough information to even have a short coffee talk about the subject.

very repetitive, little content
very repetitive, little content, read the book instead, every five minutes you'll hear the same shot over again
