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
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.
When the authur tells you how great Arthur Anderson is, you know you have to question everthing about the book.
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.
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.
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.
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".
Best uses of a credit in ages, really enjoyed this book. It covers the modern way of investing.
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.
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?
