    On March 14, 2012, more than three million people read Greg Smith's bombshell op-ed in the New York Times titled Why I Am Leaving Goldman Sachs. The column immediately went viral, became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter, and drew passionate responses from former Fed chairman Paul Volcker, legendary General Electric CEO Jack Welch, and New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg. Mostly, though, it hit a nerve among the general public who question the role of Wall Street in society - and the callous "take-the-money-and-run" mentality that brought the world economy to its knees a few short years ago.

    This book was an eye opener for me. Greg weaves a fun interesting life story in the world of finance. Never dull, with several colorful characters along for the ride.

  • The Secret Race: Inside the Hidden World of the Tour de France: Doping, Cover-ups, and Winning at All Costs

    Here is an explosive book that takes us, for the first time, deep inside a shadowy, fascinating, and surreal world of unscrupulous doctors, anything-goes team directors, and athletes so relentlessly driven to succeed that they would do anything—and take any risk, physical, mental, or moral—to gain the edge they needed to win. The Secret Race is a riveting, courageous act of witness from a man who is as determined to reveal the hard truth about his sport as he once was to win the Tour de France.

    If you could sum up The Secret Race in three words, what would they be?

    Not what I expected. It's Better!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I have followed Tyler's career and have been a fan. I've had the pleasure of meeting him briefly in a promo event. His book is both insightful and a joy to read. It made me laugh a few times and made me pause as well. I am an avid cyclist and often wondered what it would be like to compete at the highest levels. Now I have some perspective. If I was faced with the same dilemma, I would have made the same decision as Tyler. This is an uplifting story that thankfully, Tyler had the courage to tell. Daniel Coyle kept it moving forward and always interesting. I followed the races on TV and now I know a bit of what went on leading up to the races and the drama in the peloton. It lets us understand the suffering and the pain that these guys endure to get to the end of The Tour. There are no bad guys in this life story. Tyler and Daniel are a great team. I wish the story was longer.
