the content is great but the narrator sounded like a sorority cheer leader...hence distracting the content
The Ascent of Finance by Niall Feurgerson. its a better book and the narrator is great
get a better narrator
Too many stories to follow. Plus, I just finished Quants so I feel I wasn't in the mood for another book about the banking crisis that we all just went through.
I at first didn't like him but quickly changed my mind Now I'm almost done and the book is simply excellent and no one should avoid this material because of concerns of narration.
Mostly a history of financial regulation, from Jefferson to date. Usually inadequate descriptions of the complicated financial instruments that were involved in the recent financial crash. For me, boring, not enhanced by the unchanging, disdainful manner of the reader. Not nearly as informative or interesting as Michael Lewis's "The Big Short."
it gives one a good eye sight why we are in the mess we are. A lot of good historical facts. Worth the time to listen
The author cannot go an entire paragraph without giving us his left leaning slant.
Waste of Time! If you want a narration of the crash then you should get "The Quants", or Lewis's "The Big Short". Both books have a lefty slant, but these at least tell the real story.
