    This is a christian testomial - it was interest to understand how a American christian thinks. This is not a book about how to speck, but how to say it well i.e. christian speck well.
    I found the publishers reviews to be misleading and nothing to do with the book.

    Investing is simple, but never easy. We carry a lot of investment baggage, including hot tips from friends and the financial media, as well as complicated financial recommendations from Wall Street "experts." Yet the biggest obstacle we face is the tendency to outsmart ourselves. In order to overcome this obstacle, you need to follow straightforward strategies that will consistently push your portfolio ahead of the pack by an additional three to four percent annually.

    If you invest in unit trust/indexs across the market and do not pay high commision rates you will bet the market. That is the book. If ever I wanted my credit back it would be for this book. And I have read alot of rubish.

  • Trading in the Zone: Master the Market with Confidence, Discipline and a Winning Attitude

    Maximizing the trader's state of mind is the key to successful results. Conflicts, contradictions, and paradoxes in thinking can spell disaster for even a highly motivated, astute and well-grounded trader. Mark Douglas, an industry consultant since 1982, sends the message that a "thinking strategy" will profoundly influence a trader's success rate. Douglas addresses five very specific issues to give traders the insight and understanding about themselves that will make them consistent winners in the market. Trading in the Zone offers specific solutions to the "people factor" of commodity price movement. It uncovers the true culprit for lack of consistency when it comes to stock picking: lack of focus and self-confidence. Through simple exercises, traders will learn how to think in terms of probabilities and adopt the specific beliefs necessary to developing a winner's mindset. Along the way, they'll gain valuable insights into their own entrenched misconceptions about the market.

    I read this book (hard copy) years ago and was surprised how much extra I got out of this audible version. Is it a different version or am I in a different mindset or am I now in the zone? It is worth the credit. If you are into this topic I recommend "The Little Book of Behavioral Investing (Unabridged)" by James Montier

    Very general - introduction only. Its one of those books that sound like a lecture, it gives you an outline and tells you to go and find the information, which is great for a lecture, but not good if it is meant to be the information.

    Why are you captivated by some people but not by others? Why do you recall some brands yet forget the rest? In a distracted, overcrowded world, how do certain leaders, friends, and family members convince you to change your behavior? Answer: fascination, the most powerful way to influence decision-making. It's more persuasive than marketing, advertising, or any other form of communication. And it all starts with seven universal triggers: lust, mystique, alarm, prestige, power, vice, and trust.

    Lanie Evans says: "Hog your Head with Fascinate!"
    "a little odd"

    I could not make my mind up, if I was listening to someones uni notes on communication in advertising or it was some hybreed of comunication in the media and the individual. Not Fascinating.

  • The Drunkard's Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives

    In this irreverent and illuminating audiobook, acclaimed writer and scientist Leonard Mlodinow shows us how randomness, chance, and probability reveal a tremendous amount about our daily lives, and how we misunderstand the significance of everything from a casual conversation to a major financial setback. As a result, successes and failures in life are often attributed to clear and obvious causes, when in actuality they are more profoundly influenced by chance.

    Joshua Kim says: "Very Very Smart"
    "History of probability"
    Overall

    This book is 90% a history and development of probability theory up to the 1970's. With a last chapter added which looks like a publishers rewrite, so poorly developed and disjoint from the main body of the book, it is as if someone copied and pasted the introduction to a separate book as the conclusion to this one. I had to reread the publishers review to see why I brought this, their spin on this book makes me wonder if the reviewer was so bored they only read the first and last chapters. If you are interested in this topic check out "Predictably Irrational".

    A detailed guide to overcoming the most frequently encountered psychological pitfalls of investing. Bias, emotion, and overconfidence are just three of the many behavioral traits that can lead investors to lose money or achieve lower returns. Behavioral finance, which recognizes that there is a psychological element to all investor decision-making, can help you overcome this obstacle.

  • Clutch: Why Some People Excel Under Pressure and Others Don't

    According to Paul Sullivan, clutch performance does not stem from an innate ability. It’s a learned skill—the art of operating in high-stress situations as if they were everyday conditions. Even some of the most experienced and talented performers lack this skill—but Sullivan shows that anyone can develop it.

    waterbloom says: "Really great book, worth listening to!"
    "I don't get this book"
    Overall

    This book reminds me of sitting in a waiting room listening to someone tell me stories of their life, interesting but of no real account. It fills the time but after it is finished you feel a sence of relieve. This book is a rehash of old ideas, its the kind of book that makes you want to write your own as you know you could do a better job of it.

    The Maverick Method is a powerful and unique selling method that provides the complete picture of how complex sales work. The Method has been researched, developed and practiced over a 20-year period. We have studied and modeled over one hundred of the most successful salespeople. Unlike other selling methods, the Maverick Method has been proven by salespeople on the frontlines of the most difficult selling environments imaginable.

    Jerry G. says: "New Approach to B2B Selling."
    "Did not live up to hype"
    Overall

    I cannot believe these other reviews. If you are 15 and never read a sales book, you are forgiven into think this is a great book. It retitles great sales people and/or sales people who think outside the box as Mavericks, Well yes? but so what?
