    "Whatever it takes.". That was Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke's vow as the worst financial panic in more than 50 years gripped the world and he struggled to avoid the once unthinkable: a repeat of the Great Depression. Brilliant but temperamentally cautious, Bernanke researched and wrote about the causes of the Depression during his career as an academic. Then when thrust into a role as one of the most important people in the world, he was compelled to boldness by circumstances he never anticipated.

    Daniel says: "A must-read for Fed watchers"
    "adequate but not very informative"

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The author was trying to be unbiased but did not do very well. It did provide great background and insight to the activities surrounding the crisis, and in that regard was very worth listening to. However, It fell short on analysis of the specific plans the FED enacted and their conseqeunces.


    Would you be willing to try another book from David Wessel? Why or why not?

    No. Looking for a more impartial voice.


    What three words best describe Dan Woren’s voice?

    Smooth, understandable.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No
