Very interesting overview of different investment perspectives ranging from the pure horse sense approach to the almost esoteric analysis explained by the practitioners themselves. Excellent narration captures each individual style.
A good cast of characters and an interesting story although a lot is left untold until the end when the main character - a thief - summons all others - including a couple of police inspectors - to a Poirot-style grandiose finale where all is revealed.
While this type of ending worked beautifully for Agatha Christie's beginning of the XX century master detective stories, here it completely destroys the necessary suspension of disbelief.
A great, solid build-up thriller sprinkled with humor and with a fine cast of characters. If you like the Butcher's Boy series, Strip or Metzger's Dog you'll surely like this one.
Michael Kramer is the perfect narrator.
This is not the usual compilation of generalities feel-good-you-can-really-do-it-believe-in-yourself blah-blah-blah but actually an usable plan of action with very good information.
The narration is very professional and conveys and reinforces the spirit of the work.
... on Amazon and besides the one he talks about ad nauseam in this one there is none. I am not surprised.
I liked the author's style and what he had to say. That took about 16 minutes in this 7 hours and 16 minutes recording. The rest is a filler. I guess nobody is going to spend a credit on a 16 minutes audio book so the author felt the need to go on (and on) to a more comercially acceptable length. A pervasive problem in "how-to" books.
and in fact the author has nothing else to add to it. The substance of the core message is okay if it is left at that but it isn't. C. Northcote Parkinson postulated that work expands to fill the available time. This author has obviously too much free time.
This is an historical narrative that reads like a thriller and makes one feel we are living the events but at the same time allows us to understand them from a broader and deeper perspective. I wish all history books were like this! Great narration to boot!
... but after a slow, narrow and sometimes even dull plotless narrative it does get much better and is well worth the listening time.
Very informative and compelling bio from a founding father of personal development and the author of the best human relations book ever. Nice to know he walked his talk and never let his guru status go over his head.
I have just stopped listening to this after more than four painful hours (spread over several days).As I stand now I can only say this one is a front runner for the biggest bore I've ever listened to. But maybe I'm at fault here so I don't rule out picking this up again in a distant, very far away, insomniac future.
