?The most unexpectedly charming Washington insider memoir since Katharine Graham?s a decade ago.? ?Michael Kinsley, The New York Times Book Review ? Entertaining and insightful . . . [Greenspan] is an oracle smart enough to know what he doesn?t know. . . .

With his book, [Greenspan] finally lets us know what he?s thinking. . . . surprisingly frank . . . downright entertaining.? ?David Leonhardt, The New York Times ? First rate . . . [The Age of Turbulence] is intelligent in a way that few popular books on economics manage or even try to be . . . An enjoyable read.? ?The Economist
