Alan Greenspan: The Age of Turbulence

Greenspan2_1 I haven't seen this get much play yet, but:

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.

There are lots of books about The Maestro (including Bob Woodward 's Maestro). Many are less than flattering, with titles like Greenspan's Fraud; Who Shot Goldilocks?; and Bubble Man;       

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.
