Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for THE AGE OF TURBULENCE by Alan Greenspan.

"The most unexpectedly charming Washington insider memoir since Katharine Graham's a decade ago."
- New York Times Book Review

"Entertaining and insightful . . . Greenspan is an oracle smart enough to know what he doesn't know. . . . Such humility, coming from someone as powerful as Alan Greenspan, is disarmingly refreshing, as is this interesting and edifying book."
- Boston Globe"

"Greenspan's well-informed musings offer much more food for thought than the usual Washington memoir."
- BusinessWeek

"With his book, Greenspan finally lets us know what he's thinking. . . . surprisingly frank . . . downright entertaining."
- The New York Times

"First rate . . . The Age of Turbulence is intelligent in a way that few popular books on economics manage or even try to be . . . An enjoyable read."
- The Economist review:

"In the immediate aftermath of September 11, 2001, in his 14th year as Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, Alan Greenspan took part in a collective effort to ensure that America didn't experience an economic meltdown, taking the rest of the world with it. There was good reason to fear the worst: the stock market crash of October 1987, his first major crisis as Federal Reserve Chairman, had come close triggering a financial panic. But the most remarkable thing that happened to the economy after 9/11 was...nothing. The Age of Turbulence is the distillation of a life's worth of wisdom and insight into an elegant expression of a coherent worldview."
