October 21, 2012
Excerpt from The New York Times -- "The global financial crisis destroyed reputations as effectively as it destroyed wealth. Alan Greenspan, Robert E. Rubin, Sanford I. Weill, Richard S. Fuld Jr., James E. Cayne — the list of the humbled is almost endless, while the number of heroes is minuscule. One man, however, bucked the trend and almost alone emerged from the crisis even more revered and admired than he had been already. And now, with the arrival of 'Volcker: The Triumph of Persistence,' Paul A. Volcker has finally been awarded a meticulous historical account of exactly how he reached his exalted position."
