In this book, Woodward looks at Alan Greenspan and his work up until 2001. Greenspan appears to be an enigmatic figure who was quite knowledgeable in how to play politics and the press. There is a fair amount of economic discussion in the book but nothing in the depth to make non-economists eyes glaze over. Overall, I think this was a very good book and as always with Bob Woodward, worth your time to read. 2 people found this helpful.

In Maestro, Bob Woodward takes you inside the Fed and Greenspan's thinking. We listen to the Fed's internal debates as the American economy is pushed into a historic 10-year expansion while the world economy lurches from financial crisis to financial crisis. Greenspan plays a sometimes subtle, sometimes blunt behind-the-scenes role. He appears in Maestro up close as never before - alternately nervous and calm, plunging into mathematics one moment and politics the next, skeptical, dispassionate, always struggling - often alone.

The Greenspan years, 1987 to 2000, are presented here as a gripping, intimate narrative, a remarkable portrait of how one man has become the symbol of American economic preeminence. Greenspan, and old-school anti-inflation hawk of the traditional economy, was among the first to realize the potential in the modern, high-productivity new economy - the foundation of the current American boom. Reappointed by Clinton in 2000 for another four-year term, Greenspan is slated to serve as Fed chairman until 2004

Greenspans Fed And The American Boom. Epilogue by Bob Woodward, Read by James Naughton. Abridged Audio Download. Trade Paperback eBook. What do they do? Why precisely do they do it?

Bob Woodward If I have one criticism of this otherwise superb book, a book that sheds light on many aspects of the Fed and its Chairman, it is that there is no hint here of what Greenspan ha.

This is a story about applied intelligence in the finest sense of the word.

Chronicles economic policy as it came about in the first year of Clinton's presidency, examining the roles of Chairman Alan Greenspan, Wall Street, technology, and more to explain how the current economic arena came into being. Simultaneous.

After reading a review of two new books about Alan Greenspan, I was eager to learn more about this enigmatic man. The question: which book? The long and short of it is that I bought both, and here's why I enjoyed Justin Martin's Greenspan far more than Bob Woodward's new book that is receiving a fair amount of fanfare. Martin's book gives us a vivid picture of Greenspan's early years and the winding path he took to becoming the most powerful economic force on Earth. At each turn, you realize that Greenspan's decisions, while primarily personally motivated, ultimately led Greenspan to a position, which has great influence over our lives today. What would the "new economy" look like if Greenspan had stuck it out as a professional Saxophonist? To me, it is far more interesting to learn about what made the man than to follow a detailed narrative on the Fed (Woodward's book) most of which is recent history and well documented. When Martin explains Greenspan's policy, its implementation and its ultimate influence on the world's economy, we feel we know the man behind it all. If you're really interested in Greenspan (like I am) it wouldn't be a mistake to buy both books, but, by all means, be sure to read Martin's first.

I read all of Bob Woodward's books as I find him to be an author who can take a fairly academic topic (e.g. the work that Greenspan did) and make it into a read that is interesting and informative.

Woodward's strength is his ability to get the inside gossip from his myriad of unnamed sources. They sometimes dish the dirt on each other which makes it an amusing read at times and one wonders the effect it has on them when they read about themselves in his books. I am sure there are some strained relationships as a result.

In this book, Woodward looks at Alan Greenspan and his work up until 2001. There is a fair amount of economic discussion in the book but nothing in the depth to make non-economists eyes glaze over. Greenspan appears to be an enigmatic figure who was quite knowledgeable in how to play politics and the press.

Overall, I think this was a very good book and as always with Bob Woodward, worth your time to read.

Do you want to be generally more knowledgeable about one of our nation's most powerful men? Want to understand better how the Fed's decisions affect the economy? Want to appreciate the always-delicate interplay between politics and monetary policy? How about to enjoy reading about economics without being put to sleep? If that's what you're looking for, this book is for you. It doesn't provide ammunition for either side of the political debate, for the most part. The most intriguing thing about this book is perhaps its timing. It's mostly a collection of extended anecdotes about situations Greenspan handled successfully. Will the current situation be an addition or an exception to the tales in Maestro? As of March 01, it's too early to tell ....

Another angle of the maestro. I've read the "Man who knew" as well. Very good read!

I bought this book because it was required reading for my AP Macroeconomics class. I felt like it was going to be a drag to read because I had to and was going to have a test on it. However, I loved it!! It's extremely interesting and wonderfully written. Even if you aren't well-versed in economics, it is written for anyone to understand. It's easy to follow and I aced the test!!I really enjoyed it and recommend it to anyone who is interesting in learning more abut Alan Greenspan, our federal reserve system, macroeconomic monetary policy, or just the way that our economy works in general!!

I was extremely pleased with this fantastic read!! However, I recommend not reading it on Kindle if you would be interested in the photos in the printed version!

I decided to pick this book up after reading "Secrets of the Temple," hoping that it would serve as a sort of extended epilogue to that wonderful book by William Grieder on Paul Volker, Greenspan's predecessor at the Fed. However, I wasn't expecting much from Woodward - and unfortunately I wasn't disappointed.

The book briefly chronicles Greenspan's life and offers some sharp apercus on his celebrated tenure as Federal Reserve Chairman over the past decade-and-a-half. The book provides about as much detail and insight as a well-written newspaper or journal series and can easily be read in a day or two.

If you know little about the Federal Reserve and central banking in general, perhaps this book will be informative or a least serve as a primer for more serious reading. Otherwise, I don't see any reason to bother with this one...
