  • "Great information but..."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I really enjoyed the ideas put forward in this book and I think it is very important that randomness and statistics be better understood in society. That said, the author of the book is long-winded, imperious, and extremely self focused. "I" is the most common word used throughout the book while the author disdains his fellow traders on Wall Street, his fellow MBA's, and his fellow academics.

    If you can get past the author, the ideas and information of the book is worth the effort.

  • Financial Peace Revisited

    "Surprisingly disappointing - sorry dave"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I have listened to daves other book - the total money makeover more than 40 times. I bought this book thinking it might add some additional insights, but was disappointed. The difference between the two is that in the total money makeover, dave has a very succinct programme for us listeners to follow. In financial peace, it is more of a rambling journey interspersed with religious references. Clearly dave has developed his programme over time and it shows through in the total money makeover. the other reason to recommend total money makeover, over financial peace is that dave narrates his later book. In this book it is someone else who does not portray the same passion and motivation that dave brings to total money makeover. I listen to daves book every month and despite being a brit, living in britain, the key messages are just as applicable. I am working my way out of debt using caves programme. I strongly recommend any listener to look at total money makeover rather than this book as you will be better motivated, have a clear structured programme and be more likley to get out of debt and become wealthy.

  • The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness

    "Thanks Dave - its working for me already"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I listen to this book at least once a month and can nearly recite it word for word. I had several false starts to starting this programme, but have finally knuckled down to clear debt. The book sets out a no nonsense approach to clearing debt and building wealth, saving for retirement, saving for the kids education and clearing the mortgage. I live in the UK and am a native brit and yet this book rings true here as much as it does in the US. I find daves approach more sensible than other advice given by the likes of money saving experts which suggests using credit cards to get money back deals, use all your savings to clear debt instead of having a small rainy day fund and clear the highest % rate debt first. Daves approach is completely different and I have found it more logical and it is working for me. Buy this audio book and help to change your economic life. I only wished I had learned this approach 20 years ago - I would be very wealthy now.

  • "Well presented strategies."

    11 of 12 helpful votes

    Buy this book if you already have decent options knowledge. If you don't speak the "options language", you might have a hard time understanding the strategies.

    Not that this book isn't for a beginner, it's that the audio version isn't for a beginner. A beginner will need to see all the charts he is describing in the book to really understand how to place these trades.

    Now, if you're already familiar with calls, puts, OTM, ATM, ITM, strike price, and all the other vocab you have to know to trade options, then you can probably handle the audio version.

    He outlines 4 main strategies in the book:

    DITM calls with a delta of .9 or higher. (The "D" in DITM stands for deep)
    Option credit spreads. i.e. bull put spreads/bear call spreads
    Selling naked puts.
    Writing covered calls.

    If you have already done all these things, the book is still worth checking out. He really explains Delta well and also gives some really good clues and insight on using volatility to your advantage.

    There is also a great chapter on what life is like being a market maker. Great stuff in that chapter.

    So, can you get rich doing this? Of course! Can you go to the poor house in a hurry doing this? Of course! If you're a person who is writing covered calls in order to collect high premiums without really wanting the underlying stock, you need this book. You will learn how to better hedge that strategy so you don't get hammered. Trust me, I've done that.....and I got HAMMERED! Do your homework on the underlying, hedge your position, and you won't get creamed. Honestly, if your goal is to beat the market average every year, you could easily do it with the strategies outlined in this book. I've done it for years and I'm getting better returns now that I am using the advice in this book.

    He doesn't candy coat anything. He makes it very clear what the worst case scenario of each trade is. Don't selectively listen, do your homework and don't lose your retirement trading options.

    One final note, he does plug a few websites that are pay sites. Reviewers on other websites nailed him for this in their reviews of this book. You do not have to have his pay site to implement his strategies. He also spends a good amount of time telling you where you can get option advice for FREE on the web so I don't know why those reviewers beat up on him so much for plugging his site. He points you to more than enough free resources to be fully informed on his strategies.

    Good luck.

    In The Outsiders, you'll learn the traits and methods striking for their consistency and relentless rationality that helped these unique leaders achieve such exceptional performance. Humble, unassuming, and often frugal, these "outsiders" shunned Wall Street and the press, and shied away from the hottest new management trends. Instead, they shared specific traits that put them and the companies they led on winning trajectories: a laser-sharp focus on per share value as opposed to earnings or sales growth; an exceptional talent for allocating capital and human resources; and the belief that cash flow, not reported earnings, determines a company's long-term value.
