I've worked in the financial services industry for about 20 years and have read and recommended Market Wizards and New Market Wizards countless times. However, this book, which follows the same format, falls very, very short due to its horrible narration. Clinton Wade obviously knows nothing about the business as he cannot correctly pronounce arbitrage or muni. It's very distracting to listen to someone repeatedly say arbitrij and moonie. He does however change his voice somewhat effectively from question to answer, but his tone is so docile, it can lull you to sleep. I listen to books while I drive and over the years have listened to hundreds. Books on trading are at the top of my list and this one just fell so short. To be fair though, I read his other books, so I will read this and try to get past the horrible narration.
Dull, slow, littered with mispronunciations and just an overall poor choice of narrator.
Yes. I will listen to this book again as the walk through history, specifically WWII was fascinating and beautifully detailed. Seeing history through the lens of finance made this one of the most enjoyable books I've read in a long time. I've been an audible listener since 2011 and prior to that used to listen to books on disc and tape before that. In short, it's been hundreds of books and this was near the top for me.
The looting and confiscation that took place during WWII and the absolute barbarism that humans can devolve into.
It's not a quick listen and I've listened to a few parts a few times and plan to go through the whole book again. I really enjoyed it.
