An in depth look at Alan Greenspan's life as well as his views on the American and World Economy. Unless you're an economist or keenly interested in finance you will probably find most of this book a bit dry. However, among all the libertarian theories and economic ideas you find some interesting gems, including insights into the administrations he's worked for (he considers Nixon and Clinton to be the smartest Presidents he's known), the politics pushed onto the economy, a look at the countries of the world (which are succeeding and failing), how the fed reacted during 9/11, and more. If you have no interest in economics you will probably want to avoid this book, but if you do like that subject, it's well worth the read.
