Many reviewers have touched on these points--I'd like to add my vote (which is hopefully audible): Start by reading the entire "What's News" leads. Follow with hard news articles (M&A.. earnings surprises.. Spitzer) from each section that are likely to affect the markets that same day. Then, once the listener is informed and ready for work, add the editorials, human interest, etc. Today's 12-minute lead story (read in its excruciating entirety) was about how capitalism in China is affecting tradional filial piety. Interesting, but does that prepare me for Wednesday, April 13? An alternative solution is to distribute each story or section as a separate file so I can "flip through".
Finally, please tell the reader that he doesn't have to say "Carlos SLEEEM Helu." "Carlos Slim" is just fine. I was laughing so hard I almost walked into traffic.
Reviews are GREAT.
Business news is there.
But... some of the stories are TOO WORDY.
I listen, FIRST, to SAVE time,
not to add to my stressful scheduale.
PLEASE EDIT those "life-style stories"!
An enjoyable way to get the news in the morning beyond the headlines. A great way to hear some of the feature articles that I might not necessary read in its entirety. I agree with previous review - Would like to hear all the blurbs from What's News first before going to the larger articles. However, the editorials are awesome so please always include.
An outstanding, low-cost way to keep up with the latest lines and lies from Wall Street! In my humble experience, the WSJ and particularly its Weekend Journal, is unsurpassed as the most incisive look into the it's-all-about-me-and-investor-value mindset, which controls our corporate business world...
A must hear once in a while for any audible.com listener.
