Are you interested in the stock market? Do you plan to start investing in it? Or have you burned your fingers in the real estate through rash decisions or wrong advice? Have you been swayed by hype and ads that lure you with the prose of quick riches?   Well, then, Madness of the Masses is a book you must read. History has proved time and again how get-rich- quick offers have fallen flat, leaving investors in a state of financial ruin.   However, we never seem to learn from history. When the next exciting scheme to get rich comes along, we fall for it all over again, leaving us in financial ruin, while the perpetrators of the scams, more often than not, laugh their way to the banks. These boom and cycles continue century after century.   In this book, author Sameer Rastogi makes a compelling case for how human greed and envy propel us towards financial ruin. He says, “I have witnessed investor emotions and biases during Booms and Depressions. With experience, I realized that most of the investor questions and investor biases didn’t have practical answers in pure investment research. It required out-of- the-box thinking. It required analysis of investor behaviour at large. It required a study of emotional forces like greed and fear… For investment success, the EQ of each investor proved to be worth its weight in gold. Also, high investment IQ alone didn’t necessary translate into higher investment profits.”   Unlike most dry finance books, Madness of the Masses is peppered with interesting anecdotes from history detailing scams through the ages, making it a thought-provoking, fascinating read. A definite must-read for investors and potential investors as there is a lesson for each of us. The author says, “The bubbles and scams are not new. They have been in existence since the time humans have been greedy, jealous and fearful. The madness of the masses is here to stay. It is up to individuals to learn from the past and stand apart from the crowd.”   Section 1 Historical evidences of our vulnerability to Investment Bubbles and Scams   1.
