    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.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Bringing something to the listener that was not so predictable. Also the author is speaking from a relatively low level point of view. If every low to mid level employee was aloud to write a book.....


    Has Why I Left Goldman Sachs turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I just think that I need to read reviews before making a purchase.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Greg Smith’s performances?

    Never!


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Nothing that was not said in his 1500 word op-ed.


    Any additional comments?

    Do not waste your money.
