To Raymond, who believes that everything is possible. 5 The story of the Great Bull Market of 1982–99 needs to be understood in this context. For what was seen, rightly, as the most extraordinary bull run in . history was, at the same time, very much part of a larger pattern. The Limits and Uses of Cycle Theory- Russell’s Record Charles Dow was neither the first nor the last to note the market’s cycles, and he is only one of many who have tried to use a theory of cycles to forecast long-term trends.

In 1982, the Dow hovered below 1000. Then, the market rose and rapidly gained speed until it peaked above 11,000. Noted journalist and financial reporter Maggie Mahar has written the first book on the remarkable bull market that began in 1982 and ended just in the early 2000s. For almost two decades, a colorful cast of characters such as Abby Joseph Cohen, Mary Meeker, Henry Blodget, and Alan Greenspan came to dominate the market news.

This inside look at that 17-year cycle of growth, built upon interviews and unparalleled access to the most important analysts, market observers, and fund managers who eagerly tell the tales of excesses, presents the period with a historical perspective and explains what really happened and why.

I really liked this summary of the great 1982-2002 bull market because in the space provided (500 pages = 400 story and 100 pages of references and notes) it did a really nice job of capturing the events, players, and stories of the times (which I lived through as a layman investor). This is not a deep, dry book about economic theories of why crashes happened (eg 1987), or of what mainstream economic theories or principles were at work (interest rates, junk bonds, etc). Instead it's a story about people, greed, fear, the media, the manias, and the main bull-market financial fuels of the times.

I particularly liked the use of headlines of the day, quotes from people of the times, and so on, because I remember lots of them from living through it. Looking back, it's like the bull market was a hurricane, sucking up huge amounts of money from junk bonds, from corporate accounting manipulations, and from individual investors to feed the storm. And to last for 20 years, even when people knew it was going to eventually pop -- wow.

Recommended, definitely. (But not to picky academics, historians, or economists; this is a book that laymen can understand and enjoy, because of the superb writing style.)

This book is not a technical read in any way. Instead, this book is written as various anecdotes, beginning from the fifties to the present day. Mahar tells the story of various influential people in the industry as well as families and the average man experiencing various aspects of a financial cycle (bear and bull markets) and how they acted and why they did what they did.

She outlines various causes of bull markets and bear markets. She analyzes investor behaviors in each part of the cycle and outlines some eery commonalities between the various events.

I believe that this book is well worth the money because it teaches you some things to look for in both bull and bear markets. She gives the names of people who strategically position themselves out of the wall street mentality and give their honest sell and buy recommendations when the market is under or over valued. I think for the few dollars you spend on this book, you might save a lot more money timing your buys and sells based on what Mahar says in this book.

I didn't give this a 5 star rating because I didn't think it was a 5 star book in my opinion.

However, I still believe its a must read book to gain some more investing knowledge.

On the surface, this is a history of the stock market over the past 20 years. Like most economic history, one would expect to be bored to tears. The book adds a couple doses of financial theory (also "Ho Hum") and somehow manages to be a delightfully insightful and interesting read. The 400+ pages just flew by.

There's lots of interesting historical annecdotes included:

1) The bears who get killed for mistiming their predictions. (The bull isn't done until the last bear is gored)

2) How the Blodgets of the world were created by a system that encouraged cooking the books and an abdication of responsibility. (Mahar covers the laws that created this environment, and those politicians that pushed for them)

3) The ups and down of particular investors as they deal with the bull and inevitable bear.

In addition, several insights come out:

1) Buy and Hold Equities isn't all that it's cracked up to be.

2) Not everyone belongs in the market. Indeed, many investing professionals make their money on Wall Street, but invest it on Main Street. (Harder to lose money on a house)

3) Decreasing spending or increasing earning potential can go a long way.

4) It is easier to pick trends than timing them.

There are a couple attacks on her thinking:

1) She cites the virtues of market timing, but market timing really isn't that easy. If it were, we'd all be doing it.

2) She cites many folks who called the end of the bull right. In a sea of information overload, it isn't that easy to find these people and understand their arguments. (There's always convincing bears)

3) There are many instances of "If you only followed Xs advice from Day Y..." which is tough to check. Is that a valid trend, or are the dates (especially the end dates) picked just to amplify a point? (It's always possible to find a 5, 10 or 20 year period to prove a point)

That said, the book is an important one, both from a historical point of view, and to improve one's investing.
