6. John Brooks (writer) – John Brooks was a writer and longtime contributor to The New Yorker magazine, where he worked for many years as a staff writer, specializing in financial topics. Brooks was also the author of books, both fiction and non-fiction, the best known of which was an examination of the financial shenanigans of the 1960s Wall Street bull market. John Nixon Brooks was born on December 5,1920, in New York City and he graduated from Kent School in Kent, Connecticut in 1938 and Princeton University in 1942. After graduation Brooks joined the United States Army Air Forces, in which he served as a communications and he was aboard the First United States Army headquarters ship on D-Day during the Allied invasion of Normandy in 1944. After leaving the military, Brooks went to work for Time magazine and he worked at Time for only two years, pining for a chance to write at more length and in a looser style than that dictated by the newsweekly format. In 1949, Brooks got his break and that year he joined The New Yorker as a staff writer – a development he later called the lucky break that made his career. While working at The New Yorker, Brooks also began contributing book reviews to Harpers Magazine, Brooks was the author of three novels, one – The Big Wheel, published in 1949 – describing a newsmagazine much like Time. Brookss best-known New Yorker two-part Annals of Business article was about Henry Ford II and the introduction of the most famous failed automotive gambit in history. He was not a breaker of big stories, or a shaper of important journalistic institutions, wrote journalist Joseph Nocera, now of The New York Times. He was a writer, He was that rarest of birds. Part of Brookss appeal as a financial journalist was that he wrote for a general-interest publication, unlike journalists for more narrowly focused business publications, Brooks realized early on that it was storytelling – and not financial jargon – that would propel readers through his pieces. As Mr. Brooks tells this tale of dishonor, desperation, and the fall of the mighty, it takes on overtones of Greek tragedy, whitneys sordid history has been told before, said The Wall Street Journal in its review. But in Mr. Brookss hands, the drama becomes freshly shocking, Brookss account of the bull market of the 1960s in The Go-Go Years similarly delineated the personalities at the center of the action, like high-flying portfolio manager Gerald Tsai. In Brookss retelling of the events, Tsai and others correctly intuited that the ways of the Street were changing. Speculation was on the rise, Brooks noted, made easier by the new casino mentality, writer Michael Lewis noted that Brookss outrage at the new speculative excesses of the 1960s marked the end of an era. Who on Wall Street these days thinks twice about speculation, who disapproves of such large corporate takeovers. No such person exists, or if he does hes living on some island so remote that no word of the market will ever reach him, as with previous market booms and busts, much of the new sober hindsight emerged from the rubble of the previous boom. Written during the recession of 1973, Time magazines review has a familiar ringJohn Brooks (writer) – Ford Motor Company 's Edsel, subject of author John Brooks's best-known New Yorker profile
