finance funny and entertaining."-Miami Herald
"Mr. Rothchild finds some compelling evidence that a bear might be lurking in the woods. (He) addresses the subject with candor."-The Wall Street Journal
"According to Rothchild, there's a dark cloud looming behind virtually every silver lining. And to the extent that it can, his book gives investors useful market history to help them cope when the next storm arrives to put the current bull in its place."-Washington Post Book World
"THE BEAR BOOK would be fascinating just because Rothchild is an entertaining writer who has gathered such a wide variety of historical facts, anecdotes, theories and current opinions to enlighten the reader about market declines."-Chicago Sun-Times
"A timely wake-up call...contains fascinating stories about history's greatest financial busts as well as guidance on how to cope with the next one."-Miami Herald
