    In Jim Cramer's Mad Money, TV's champion of the middle-class investor walks you through the key decisions investors have to make: understanding your tolerance for risk and defining your goals, doing the essential homework on a stock, and knowing how to buy and sell stocks the right way - the Cramer way.

    Would you listen to Jim Cramer's Mad Money again? Why?

    I already have started. It is full of useful information explained in an interesting way. It is an awesome supplement to his show and stands on its own just fine too.

    Don't be hesitant to purchase just because it was written before the big crash in 2008 - even though any specific references to companies at the time may be out of date, (a fact he even addresses in the book itself) the fundamentals are all still very applicable.

    I plan to purchase more of his books.


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

    There is a market for everything.


    Any additional comments?

    Booyah!

    To make the journey into The Power of Now you need to leave your analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. Access to the Now is everywhere - in the body, the silence, and the space all around you. These are the keys to enter a state of inner peace.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Seriously, the guy is talking to you like he is some zen master and those asking him the questions being played by other people are clearly asking scripted questions, it is just annoying to me to listen to. Might be fine for other people, I don't know.

    I would probably just read this one in book form, unless you want to feel you are being preached to by someone all knowing. I got it because it was recommended to me in that form, and I thought I'd give audio a try.

  • My Life, Volume II

    President Bill Clinton's My Life is the strikingly candid portrait of a global leader who decided early in life to devote his intellectual and political gifts, and his extraordinary capacity for hard work, to serving the public. It is the fullest, most concretely detailed, most nuanced account of a presidency ever written, and a testament to the positive impact on America and on the world of his work and his ideals.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would, it gives you so much of a broader perspective of what was happening during all those years when, in all honesty, the only side I heard was that of the media. While you have to take the presidents words with a grain of salt at times (he is after all one of the smoothest characters in recent history) it is so refreshing to hear this whole thing from his side.

    It left me with a real understanding of why he might have been more successful that in a lot of areas than other presidents, because you get to understand the real man - even through his style of writing, his real personality shines through.




    What was one of the most memorable moments of My Life, Volume II?

    Listening to Whitewater (something I was too young to really understand at the time) unfold from his point of view.


    What about Michael Beck’s performance did you like?

    His voice will have you believing that he is Bill Clinton after an hour or so.

  • The Help

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Where does The Help rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    As far as fiction is concerned it felt more like listening to a play than a book, in that the characters were very clearly defined by the different speakers. That is something I have not yet seen in an audiobook but am now looking for more of.

    The story is better than a lot of fiction I've read (admittedly I have not read much) but it wasn't anything ground breaking or earth shattering either. It kept me engaged.
