    You would have to live under a rock not to know who Alan Greenspan is. But that's probably about as much as you know. Leave it to investigative reporter Bob Woodward to uncover the story of Greenspan and the power he wields as head of the Federal Reserve.

    A must read for anyone in the markets. I have gained a new level of respect for the man and the process he helped shape.

    With integrity and authority, former SEC chair Arthur Levitt gives us a bracing primer on the collapse of the system that oversees our capital markets, and essential advice on a discipline we often ignore to our peril - how not to lose money. At once anecdotal (names are named), informative, and prescriptive, Take on the Street "should be mandatory for anyone with a dollar invested in the stock market," says Publishers Weekly.

    Sean says: "Self-promoting with no usable info"
    "Investor Beware!"

    Are you and investor? Have you bought stock on an exchange? Then you need to listen to this audio book. It will scare the pants of you. You will never approach the markets the same way again.

    He is the scourge of Stupid White Men everywhere. He's taken on fat cats, gun nuts, lying politicians. The Guardian describes him as "a wake-up call, a kick in the mental backside." And now, Michael Moore is back, daring to ask the most urgent question of these perilous times: Dude, Where's My Country?

    CARL V PHILLIPS says: "I am politically to the left - this is just bad"
    "Wake up America, Micheal is talking"

    Yet again Michael Moore has adressed the current state of politics head on. This is a must read for any one interested in the current state of affairs of the American nation. Will keep you interested right to the end.
