Alan Greenspan: The Age of Turbulence
Posted By Barry Ritholtz On February 3, 2007 @ 11:39 am In Books | Comments Disabled
Later this year, Alan Greenspan’s memoir will be released, titled "The Age of Turbulence." 
Publication date is Sept. 17 (you cannot yet pre-order it  on Amazon ). Greenspan’s editor is pushing the rumor that the Maestro’s promotional tour will include an appearance on the Tonite Show with Jay Leno .
There are lots of books about The Maestro (including Bob Woodward ‘s Maestro ). Many are less than flattering , with titles like Greenspan’s Fraud ; Who Shot Goldilocks? ; and Bubble Man ;
I still get a chuckle every time I recall the Onion quote  about his retirement: "I guess the crash-and-burn lifestyle of a ‘chairman of the Federal Reserve’ finally caught up with the guy."

This showed up on Bloomberg:
One "funny story” Moyers recounted stems from the saxophone-playing Greenspan’s days in a jazz band in the 1940s, before he embarked on a career in economics.
"When his band mates were out back smoking funny cigarettes, he was doing their tax returns for them at the table,” Moyers said. "He got to know a certain pungent smell well during breaks from his gigs. He didn’t partake himself and he certainly didn’t inhale.”
