Paul Volcker: The Making of a Financial Legend

By Joseph B. Treaster | Go to book overview

Additional Praise for Paul Volcker:
The Making of a Financial Legend

“As Joseph Treaster's quite wonderful biography makes clear, Paul Volcker is a rare gift to the nation. Read this book and be reminded anew of the extraordinary integrity and intellectual firepower Volcker has made synonymous with his service to the Republic. You may not think you care about the role of the Federal Reserve, but after you read Paul Volcker: The Making of a Financial Legend, you will.”

—Hodding Carter III,

State Department Spokesman in the Carter Administration and currently President of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation

“I remember well when Paul Volcker became chairman of the Fed and vowed to break inflation. Not many believed him, but he did it, almost single-handedly. The story of this great financial strategist will help you understand today's economy and what lies ahead.”

—Jim Rogers, international investor and author of the bestselling books, Adventure Capitalist andInvestment Biker

“Through five decades of competence and integrity in both the public and private sectors, Paul Volcker has gained the respect of the world's financial leaders while never forgetting those in America who needed a helping hand. He has been the voice of calm in times of financial crisis and of innovation in times of opportunity. Above all he has been candid in a world where candor often takes second place to public relations and spin. Treaster's compelling book about an extraordinary American is long overdue.”

—Former Senator Bill Bradley
