Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds

Extraordinary Popular Delusions and The Madness of Crowds - Charles MacKay To be honest, I did not finish this book. The beginning was extremely interesting and well written. But as the story of the financial bubbles goes, it sounds more like the author is dragging his feet into the littles stories, instead of talking about the big one, the one I was initially interested in.Gossips of the french court during Mississipi Bonds Bubble, sailor eating a 3 000 florins tulip bulbs are fun, but not relevant for the kind of book I was looking for.
