Read full description of the books:
Who would have thought that an economist could become a superstar on par with the world's most popular movie stars or rock idols?Alan Greenspan, a 74-year old bespectacled, somewhat owlish-looking man, has been called the second most powerful man in Washington. Which, if you do the quick math, makes him the second most powerful person in the world. Yet, very little is known about this private man whose words can sink markets -- or raise them; whose financial expertise has led the U.S. to the greatest prosperity in world history.
The Quotations of Alan Greenspan is a collection of the most important thoughts of the Federal Reserve Chairman from his speeches, testimony, and the all-too-rare interviews. Readers will learn what makes our economy tick, and how to make better business decisions. There are more than 20 sections that include hundreds of his quotes covering such topics as:
-- Employment and housing
-- Government regulation
-- Borrowing, debt, and risk
-- And many, many more

Read information about the authorI am what some people might call a successful author. I've had published more than 15 non-fiction books under my name, pseudonyms and as a ghost writer. I'm also a journalist and writer.
My first mystery/thriller "USA, Inc." has just been published in eBook and paperback by Bay City Publishers.
Several of my books have won awards and made me semi-famous. I've been on NPR, C-SPAN, CNN, USA Today, CBS, Evening News, Fox TV News, Bloomberg Business News, Voice of America, and my articles have been published by the Washington Post, LA Times and others.
I don't like to brag (well, a little maybe) so you can see my books and my full bio at my website
I beat out all my cousins for the domain name, and I'm pretty proud of that.
I'm also a licensed Private Investigator which is very much like being a reporter except you get to show people your cool ID issued by the state government.
After making my living as a non-fiction writer and author for many decades, I've turned to fiction, taking what I've learned about writing real stories to writing fake stories. (No snickers, please) I write a blog titled the The Non-Fiction Novelist and it's designed to help non-fiction writers (like me) to become novelists. It's a different ball game for sure but many of the same habits, thought processes and lessons are transferable.
Here's the cutline: "What if the US were run like a corporation and a madman was in charge." Pretty provocative, I'd say. I highly recommend it.
Through the years, many people have asked me what it's like to be a writer. For me, it's been a great job and career. I wouldn't want to do anything else.
Unfortunately, I also tell them what they don't want to hear. It's hard work, and unless you have luck and perseverance, it's difficult to make a living at it.
Talent? Yes, that helps, but good writing can be learned if you're willing to make the effort, have a thick skin about criticism and take it seriously as your life's work.
If you just want to write as a hobby or for fun, that's cool, too, but too many folks tell me how frustrating it is for them, how they'd rather do anything else than write and I always respond: "Maybe you got something there."
