    Howard Marks, the chairman and cofounder of Oaktree Capital Management, is renowned for his insightful assessments of market opportunity and risk. After four decades spent ascending to the top of the investment management profession, he is today sought out by the world's leading value investors, and his client memos brim with insightful commentary and a time-tested, fundamental philosophy. The Most Important Thing explains the keys to successful investment and the pitfalls that can destroy capital or ruin a career.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Despite the annoying narration this book is worth listening to because the author constantly reinforces the main theme: Don't lose money! No specific strategies here. Rather this money manager offers his investment philosophy that governs his day to day decisions. His track record speaks for itself.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Have a different narrator.


    What three words best describe John FitzGibbon’s voice?

    Annoying, annoying and annoying.


    What did you take away from The Most Important Thing that you can apply to your work?

    More important than how to make money is knowing how not to lose it.

    The internationally acclaimed author team of William Bonner and Addison Wiggin return to reveal how the epic financial bubble that is plaguing the United States will soon bring an end to this once great empire. They offer a frightening look at the United States' precarious position and discuss how government control of the economy and financial system - combined with unfettered deficit spending and gluttonous consumption - has ravaged the business environment.

    Mr. says: "Very interesting, very insightful... a great read"
    "Scary!"

    Would you try another book from William Bonner and Addison Wiggin and/or Sean Pratt?

    Absolutely! Their analysis is spot on and well researched. They've written material that accurately preceded the economic events leading up to 2007-2008. Hopefully they are wrong about the future of the American economy!


    Could you see The New Empire of Debt being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes.

    Today everyone whether they know it or not - is in the emotional transportation business. More and more, success is won by creating compelling stories that have the power to move partners, shareholders, customers, and employees to action. Simply put, if you can’t tell it, you can’t sell it. And this book tells you how to do both.
