    Did Wall Street cause the mess we are in? Should Washington place stronger regulations on the financial industry? Can we lower unemployment rates by controlling the free market? Answer: no. Not only is free-market capitalism good for the economy, it is our only hope for recovery. As the nation’s longest-serving CEO of one of the top 25 financial institutions, John Allison has had a unique inside view of the events leading up to the financial crisis.

    For years I had known the government and irresponsible people were the cause of the financial meltdown; I just never knew the details. Such a great explanation and history of events by someone who has been there and come out the other side. Cynics and conspiracists will most likely say this book is propaganda, but they are just socialist like Obama. If you want businesses to compete and grow, leave them alone and let them fend for themselves. The market (the people of the United States) will determine who succeeds and who fails.

    Where does How to Win Friends & Influence People rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    So glad I listened to this. I will most likely listen to it multiple times.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Not everyone thinks like you, so get them to think you think like them.


    Any additional comments?

    I know there are endless scenarios to how to talk and deal with people, but they are justified. Anyone who complains about this book's view on how to deal with people, obviously has a problem dealing with people and did not actually understand the concept. They can repeat the definitions, but fail to intellectually comprehend the lessons. Ironically I told a previous boss she was crazy for many of these ideas, but the examples helped send some of them home for me. Bottom-line, this will be a requirement for my employees to read in the future. Anyone who manages or leads needs to read, and more importantly, understand the teachings of Dale Carnegie.

  • Investing 101, 2nd, Updated and Expanded Edition

    Investing 101: Updated and Expanded removes both roadblocks, putting people on a path that they can understand and stick with. Kristof is renowned for taking the mystery and anxiety out of investing by keeping choices manageable. Kristof walks readers through the entire investment cycle and the way they think of their financial lives, rather than presenting stand-alone concepts like stocks and real estate. This expanded edition has new information about 529 college savings plans, annuities, Roth IRAs, reverse mortgages, and why declining markets can be good for you.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Good information but obvious bias towards women. Who, according to the author are much more sound investors. Yeah... what does that have to do with anything? The narrator is also pretty painful to listen to, I often toned out or fell asleep and didn't try to rewind. Not worth the credit.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Vanessa Hart?

    Nope!
