    Meet one funny dog - Enzo, the lovable mutt who tells this story. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: most dogs love to chase cars, but Enzo longs to race them. He learns about racing and the world around him by watching TV and by listening to the words of his best friend, Denny, an up-and-coming race car driver, and his daughter, Zo; his constant companion. Enzo finds that life is just like being on the racetrack - it isn't simply about going fast. And, applying the rules of racing to his world, Enzo takes on his family's challenges and emerges a hero.

    In The Panic of 1907, authors Robert Bruner and Sean Carr offer an alternate perspective through a detailed narrative of one of the worst crises in modern financial history - one which ultimately transformed the American financial system and resulted in the establishment of the modern Federal Reserve.

    Arnold says: "Interesting for the facts but not the storytelling"
    "A financial study relevant to today."

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    No, because you know what you are getting into when you choose the title. It is about finance which can be confusing or at least boring and since I personally am not that educated in finance it was a little hard to follow sometimes. I don't believe the


    Would you be willing to try another book from Robert F. Bruner and Sean D. Carr ? Why or why not?

    Probably so on another subject. They seem to do a good job on researching their subject and presenting it in an interesting way.

    Did The Panic of 1907 inspire you to do anything?

    No. I am unable to do anything about my financial status since I am retired but it did make me understand a little more about our present economic situation.
