Her copy of Alan Greenspan’s autobiography is peppered with margin notes, underlining, circling, personal commentary, and suggestions as well as a few editor’s marks. Greenspan admits in closing that the book is roughly a fifth-million words, so statistical probability suggests there are some typos in it. He writes, “I do not know where they are. If I did, they wouldn’t be there…My apologies in advance.” Nissa noted three.
