At first I thought I had wasted a credit, but since I was stuck in my car with no other good entertainment alternative I let it go on, and I am sure glad I did. It built wonderful momentum and the story was delightful. The author had new twists throughout the story culminating in an ending I greatly enjoyed. I was sad to see this book end. Sequel?
Her Scottish accent was unbelievable She captured the tone of all the characters brilliantly.
The profanity in the beginning was a shock. By the second half of the book I was so engaged with the characters some scenes brought tears to my eyes. Opportunities to laugh exist throughout the book.
The book conatins good practical finance information for the non-finance person. However, the subject matter better lends itself to a book format where you can work through the examples. Verbal math is trying, especially given the reader. There's a reason finance guys aren't narrators. Skip the audio, thumb through the book and if it looks helpful, buy it in printed version.
If you really need this information, read the book and avoid the reader. It's more like an expaneded glossary, which can be helpful. The concepts may work better when you can view examples or workout ideas of you own on paper. At best it felt like a "C-" MBA essay read by a disengaged reader. I couldn't get passed the fisrt 5 minutes and wished I had saved my money.
