    Pre-publication commentary in the press about VOLCKER: The Triumph of Persistence

    One of "10 books we’re looking forward to this fall"Washington Post

    Longlisted for the 2012 Financial Times/Goldman Sachs Best Business Book Prize

    "Historians will find rich material and insight in this telling book"—Booklist

    "William Silber’s forthcoming biography of former US Federal Reserve chairman Paul Volcker will probably teach the median American reader more about macro-economics than Allan Meltzer’s multi-volume history of the Fed or Friedman and Schwartz’s Monetary History of the United States"
