The reader was great. Very interesting book. I wish it had not been abridged though. I also wanted to hear more about greenspans life. I only got occasional snippets of who he was in personal life and I wanted to hear more of how he lived his life. Overall very interesting book though.
History will remember the greatest evidence of Greenspan's unnatural ability to shape outcomes that rely directly on uncontrollable forces as the fact that he got Woodward to write a sympathetic book about him.
I love Woodward, and there’s nothing wrong with this book. In fact, I think that it correctly focuses on the core issues, something that others do not do very well. But it’s not one of his best books. Had it been written after the bubble burst (instead of seconds before it burst) and after 9-11, it probably would have been one of Woodward’s best books?
One wonders if a second edition which included Greenspan’s final term could transform this book from good to great.
