In their own words, these legends of Wall Street share their best investment ideas and advice. The Book of Investing Wisdom offers unique insights into how these professionals and others achieved financial success through intelligent investing.

    Where does The Book of Investing Wisdom rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have owned this audiobook for a few years now. It was the first audiobook I purchased from amazon. I enjoyed the collective wisdom from the all star cast whose methods range from commodities,trading options ,shorting stocks and the Elliot wave theory method. Like the masters buffet and lynch I also enjoyed the lesser known authors and their methodologies. The collective cast of names along with their wisdom there is sure to be some benefit no matter what your investing strategy. A good listen and very well narrated!

    Charlie Munger, Berkshire Hathaway's visionary vice chairman and Warren Buffett's indispensable financial partner, has outperformed market indexes again and again, and he believes any investor can do the same. His notion of "elementary, worldly wisdom" - a set of interdisciplinary mental models involving economics, business, psychology, ethics, and management - allows him to keep his emotions out of his investments and avoid the common pitfalls of bad judgment.

    What made the experience of listening to Charlie Munger the most enjoyable?

    This is more than a business book as Charlie shares how he thinks and approaches tough business decisions which are also applicable to everyday life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Charlie Munger?

    Many memorable quotes like the "one legged man at a ass kicking contest" also his use of implementing many approaches (mental models) to his investment making decisions.


    Have you listened to any of Fred Stella’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Fred Stella is a polished presenter and narrator.

    Just a book with gold nuggets of wisdom and funny at times too.

    Narrated by the visionary founding member, Hell's Angel provides a fascinating all-access pass to the secret world of the notorious Hell's Angels Motorcycle Club. Sonny Barger recounts the birth of the original Oakland Hell's Angels and the four turbulent decades that followed. Hell's Angel also chronicles the way the HAMC revolutionized the look of the Harley-Davidson motorcycle and built what has become a worldwide bike-riding fraternity, a beacon for freedom-seekers the world over.

    Story
    Would you listen to Hell's Angel again? Why?

    Yes. It was great to get an insiders take on the notorious Hells Angels club and understand what they're really all about.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hell's Angel?

    I liked Sonny's no BS approach to to living life his way and becoming the leader of the most famous motorcycle gang in the world. He is also funny and it is like having a beer with him and just letting him talk about the experience and colourful members of the gang! I also laughed at the part where all the members were riding to a rally when they went through a small town and some lady saw them all coming and frantically picked up her kids and ran into the house!


    What does John Pruden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Excellent narration of sonnys words. It is if sonny himself is doing the talking!


    If you could give Hell's Angel a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Hells Angels demystified!


    Any additional comments?

    Brotherhood and Sammy Barger are two sides of the same coin!

    First published in 1923, this lightly fictionalized biography of Jesse Livermore, one of the greatest market speculators ever, is widely regarded as one of best investment books of all time. Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is the resource that generations of investors have turned to when they needed deeper insight into their own investing habits and those of others. Listen to this work, featuring narrator Rick Rohan, and you'll soon discover your portfolio growing in new and unexpected ways!

    Where does Reminiscences of a Stock Operator rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the best as the author captured the brilliance of livermores mind in such a way that it captures the "how and "why" he trades the way he did. I'm always drawn into the stories as if I'm their!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The author who also deserves credit gets the most out of who is probably the greatest trader of all time. To have gotten inside the mind of this trading genius shows that he would be successful in any era as Livermore know as much about human emotion and how they drive markets up or down and he reacts swiftly long or short! No wonder this is a classic its information is timeless. Glad the author captured this genius thoughts before he died.


    Have you listened to any of Rick Rohan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    A great narration and story teller!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It is too long for one listen so I love the bookmark feature and usually pick it up and listen while i'm on the computer. I'm starting my third listen as I always learn something new!


    Any additional comments?

    Please tell the narrator (Rick Rohan) to narrate the other Livermore classic "How to trade in stocks". I would buy that in a second if it were available.
