Alan Greenspan: The Age of Turbulence
Later this year, Alan Greenspan's memoir will be released, titled "The Age of Turbulence."
Publication date is Sept. 17 (you cannot yet pre-order it on Amazon). Greenspan's editor is pushing the rumor that the Maestro's promotional tour will include an appearance on the Tonite Show with Jay Leno.
I still get a chuckle every time I recall the Onion quote about his retirement: "I guess the crash-and-burn lifestyle of a 'chairman of the Federal Reserve' finally caught up with the guy."

This showed up on Bloomberg:
One "funny story'' Moyers recounted stems from the saxophone-playing Greenspan's days in a jazz band in the 1940s, before he embarked on a career in economics.
"When his band mates were out back smoking funny cigarettes, he was doing their tax returns for them at the table,'' Moyers said. "He got to know a certain pungent smell well during breaks from his gigs. He didn't partake himself and he certainly didn't inhale.''

I really cannot imagine this book selling any more than say GW's bio. You can't understand either one of them.
