Listening to the book gave a good overview. You can definitely tell it is an abridged version I would have liked to have had the option for the unabridged version. As long as you keep a high level view in mind for the instructions it is good.
I would have liked have to have added more content.
It was nice to hear things in typical Jim Cramer fashion.
It did solidify some things that I already knew and gave me insight into other things that I did not know
Even though this book was written decades ago, the lesson in the book are timeless.
I don't know I've never seen the written version
This is a very good book. There is a lot of zen type talk, but it is an excellent learning experience. I wish I would have read this book long before I begin trading.
No, to much about Schiff's political views.
Lets save some time for you...
1. Buy Gold
2. Schiff thinks he has the answer to our political problems and wants to be in government office.
3. Don't count on any government programs to be there for you in the future.
4. We are going to have a currency war in the future.
5. Government regulation is killing the economy.
....now that I saved you the cost of the book and time to listen to it, go download something that is actually helpful. At least the narrator is good.
The insight into what a currency war is and how it effects an economy
The intro was most interesting, the least was the middle of the story.
Money education that everyone should have if you invest.
The overall book is good. I just rated it a little low because there are about 3 to 4 chapters that are a little boring, hence the coffee remark in the title. There is a lot of knowledge in this book and I plan on re-listening to it. We are starting a world currency war now and you need this knowledge to plan accordingly.
Yes, it is a great book about trials and life. I am considering training for an Ultra because of this book.
Dusty - Everyone has a friend that is a little crass, but is loyal as a dog.
Very good for switching tones and staying here to add color to the story.
Ultra. One mans push beyond all limits.
A really good book. I gained quite a bit of knowledge from this book. I actually got bored with my music on a 8 mile run and turned this book on. It was a good change. The I enjoyed "Born to Run" a little more but this is now definitely a favorite.
Wrote it better.
I would give it a try.
This sounds like it could be a good book....it's not. I gave it two hours then downloaded another book. Thank you audible for your return policy!
In the top 2
The description of the race
I have not but his performance was excellent.
Amazing book. My 6 year old daughter even enjoyed listening to this book with me. One night we sat and did small tasks for 4 hours and listed to this book the whole time. If you run at all, or even if you don't, I would say this is a must download.
The insight one develops in this book is amazing
I don't have one. I was sucked in and it was almost as I was living as the author.
The WHOLE book.
I don't want to give the book away.....so you will have to listen for yourself
This book is amazing. I never understood the situation in the Middle East and Iran until now. I have vast knowledge of government workings in that area (I can't say more) but never truly understood the depth and breath of the situation until reading this book. I felt as if I could see everything that was happening and feel everything the author went through. I was literally addicted to this book, and that rarely happens to me.
How the author broke down the housing crisis and economic disaster we encountered.
Sean Pratt is a good narrator, sometimes that is hard to find with audible books.
Use as a history of the housing and bank collapse with an economic point of view.
Understand that some of Schiff's political point of views and ideals come out in this book. It is not as bad as some of his others. Once you get past him telling you how right he was and how no one listed to him as well as the several plugs for his one company it is pretty good. Do not use this book for the modern economic condition but a history lesson that one could possibly learn from if the government does not fix our tax and spending problem.
