Greenspan's Age of Turbulence

So today, for the first time I can remember, I purchased a book on its very first day of availability. Ah ... such historic moments in my life.

I've always found Alan Greenspan to be a ridiculously interesting guy. Plus I'm fascinated by economics in general, and booms and busts in particular. And now that Greenspan's written a book about his time as Chief Big Cheese of the Federal Reserve, I find myself irresistably drawn to his hardbacked story. I haven't read much yet — maybe 20 or 30 pages — but what I've read has been entertaining ... and promising. I think I'm really going to enjoy Age of Turbulence.

Anybody else pick this up? Or does my Certified Bookhead Nerdness have me standing alone in the personal-finance blogosphere?

My financial life began turning around when I took responsibility for it.
