    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.

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

    Maybe, to try and understand some of the terminology better.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Greg Smith? Why or why not?

    For sure. The way the story was presented, I found to be excellent. The only reason I gave it 3 stars is due to my own lack of understanding of the world of finance.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Probably, when Greg was offered the job to go to England and the confrontation that took place in the office of the witch.


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

    Absoulutely!!!! I am now left with nightmares and a tremendouse fear of what little money that I have in my retirement, floating around on wall street.
