    Here is THE book recounting the life and times of one of the most respected men in the world, Warren Buffett. The legendary Omaha investor has never written a memoir, but now he has allowed one writer, Alice Schroeder, unprecedented access to explore directly with him and with those closest to him his work, opinions, struggles, triumphs, follies, and wisdom. The result is the personally revealing and complete biography of the man known everywhere as "The Oracle of Omaha."

    Richard J. Riker says: "2,220 well-invested minutes!"
    "Well worth the listen"
    Overall

    Obviously tough to hear it through the total 36 hours, but at the end I ended up thinking that my time was well invested. Entertaining and educating at the same time... I also liked the narrator, Kirsten Potter. I would rate the book as one of the top listens I've had at audible.

    Part I of the book The Amazing Power of Deliberate Intent, "Living the Art of Allowing", presents the teachings of the collective consciousness known as Abraham. This program will awaken your memory of who you really are and remind you of the power you were born with, causing a vibrational resonance with the true nature of your being.

    "Tough listen"
    Overall

    I believe I must be a minority because the customer rating on this book is high. I found it very tough to listen to and at times disturbing and annoying. The concept of communication from an alient-like-form was very tough to grasp, and it was almost as if the authors were treating listeners as five year old kids. The annoying repetitions about "vibrations" were also very tough to endure.

    In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.

    S Prabhu says: "Excellent book; well adapted for the audio format"
    "Entertaining and fun to listen to... but..."
    Overall

    I enjoyed listening to this one and thoroughly liked it. However, I also noted that the ideas that Gladwell suggested in this book are not of his original thinking... they are researches performed by other people. The way he combines other people's research is no doubt very good, but I also feel that he might be taking credit far more easily than the people that he took the research from...

  • A Primer on Money, Banking, and Gold

    Bernstein skillfully addresses how and why commercial banks lend and invest, where money comes from, how it moves from hand to hand, and the critical role of interest rates. He explores the Federal Reserve System and the consequences of the Fed's actions on the overall economy. But this book is not just about the past. Bernstein's novel perspective on gold and the dollar is critical for today's decision makers, as he provides extensive views on the future of money, banking, and gold in the world economy.

    Andrew says: "Please don't waste your time"
    "Good book but not suitable for audio audience"
    Overall

    I thought the book was a good primer as Bernstein goes into a lot of detail and cites many examples to help understand the logics behind how money and banking work in the economy. However, for those not proficient in this field, most of what he says will need time to absorb... and there are quite a lot of numbers being used as examples too. I would rather recommend the actual book.
