The first half of Greenspan’s The Age of Turbulence is rather readable. It is, more or less, an autobiographical journey through Greenspan’s youth, education, and career. I found it rather interesting, and appreciated the anecdotes along the way. The second half took me four months to complete, and consists in large part of Greenspan attempting, a chapter at a time, to explain everything. And predict the correct way for things to be, and the things that can’t be easily solved. Some is interesting, some is tedious, some is mind-numbing. If you are familiar with economics and read the newspaper, I’m not sure it’s worth reading. If not, it’s a decent overview of pretty much everything. 5/10.
