    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.

    Story
    Would you listen to Why I Left Goldman Sachs again? Why?

    Excellent expose of what is really going on there at Wall Street - how a premiere firm went from Client Focus to money grubbing focus, and how wall street finance "invented" the products and financial instruments that ultimately cost taxpayers billions to bail them out. Everyone with a pension or a 401K should read this. Well done Greg Smith for having the huevos to write this book.

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

    Not having bought it in the first place - what a mistake


    Has A Place of Yes turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    What an irritating person to listen to.... I've listened to/read many self help books over the years and would not recommend this one to anyone.
