Bubble in the Sun
The Florida Boom of the 1920s and How It Brought on the Great Depression
Christopher Knowlton - 2020-01-14
Goodreads Rating
Experience the excess and excitement of 1920s Florida, where the largest human migration in American history took place. In Bubble in the Sun, author Christopher Knowlton uncovers the grand visions and darker side of Coral Gables, Boca Raton, Miami Beach, and more, as tycoons, crooks, and celebrities descended upon the state in search of wealth and decadence. But at what cost? Knowlton reveals the enormous toll this boom had on the environment and workers, while exploring the hurricane that triggered the stock market crash and ultimately led to the Great Depression. This riveting history sheds light on an era that still impacts our country today.

@CramersShirt Yup. Bubble in the Sun is a terrific book. Recommendation: Pick up "One Summer" by Bill Bryson, about America during the summer of 1927. I revisit both every so often, usually as a pair.      source

Not kidding on the philosophy of Rory. He's not selling anyone anything, just opening up a little on how he frames his world. "Rory Philosophy" is a useful Google, by summer Friday standards. One of Rory's best book reccos is The Obstacle is the Way which I just finished.      source

Seems a good morning for this: “Guilt and regret kill many a man before their time. You are the author of the book of your life. Turn the page.” @RampCapitalLLC recommended Greenlights by Mathew McConaughey months ago. It’s tremendous. For real. And get the audio book.      source
