This book has two parts. Part 1 is his autobiography and part 2 is various essays on the economy. The most interesting part of the book was the autobiography at the beginning. If you couldn’t get through that, it doesn’t get better. The exceptions to this are Chapter 21 Education and Income Inequality and the Epilogue – they were both very interesting and thought provoking. If you want to know what the book says without going through the pain of reading the whole thing, the last chapter, the Delphic Future, summarizes the second half of the book fairly well. All in all a very dry book. However, I did feel a bond with Alan Greenspan because he was a musician before he went into finance. People thought it was weird that I changed my major from music to finance, but apparently Alan Greenspan did it, too! I liked this book, but then again I’m a finance major.

Book Review: The Age of Turbulence by Alan Greenspan
I love to read YA fantasy fiction and classic literature. I also like to write and what better to write about than my life? Because looking back makes me realize how funny my life was. Painful at the time, but hilariously funny now. I'm also a stay at home my with two young boys. My house is not as clean as it could be, but I don't really care. Books are an escape for a reason.
