It does not make sense that this was a New York Times Notable Book - Unless you consider the extreme Liberal bias that emanates from its pages...I was appalled to read that a Socialist, non-American citizen (at the time) with Communist sympathies held such high authority in our national economy during the Second World War. Name Dropping is exactly what it says - a so-called educated man's attempt to list anyone and everyone in politics that he may have made acquaintance with, no matter the breadth or substance of the encounter. I am in no way impressed with Galbraith's ability to stumble across great men and women; in fact, I was horrified by some of the stories in which he repeatedly inserted his foot into his mouth in their presence(s). The author's portrayal of these public figures is completely uninspiring, leaving me to believe that his actual dealings were few-and-far between...if not exaggerated entirely. If you enjoy 200+ pages of listening to one man's ego, than this is a must read....
