I would rank it right near the top with Steve Jobs Biography.
The entire portion of the book related to the beginning of World War II when Joe Kennedy was Ambassador to England.
Nothing extreme, but a very satisfied listening experience.
I will have to go back and read the book someday. The story is excellent and the performance also great, however it requires a steely constitution and focused attention to follow through and audio format. It was far to easy to lose track of the story.
Sure, it was an interesting listen. Makes you a bit more aware of all the background of the financial world.
Not really sure if there was a "memorable" part, but the accounts of how leveraged people and cities become in the past and the rates at which returns are given is a bit mind-boggling.
I think there's a continued interest in listening to books like this rather than reading them. Sometimes the concepts on paper don't seem as interesting as someone vocalizing it.
