  • Financial Peace Revisited

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 59 mins)
    • By Dave Ramsey
    • Narrated By Nick Sullivan

    Dave Ramsey's New York Times best-selling guide to better living through financial security, now completely revised and updated.

    Cecil says: "A Revisit to Financial Peace University"
    "Surprisingly disappointing - sorry dave"

    I have listened to daves other book - the total money makeover more than 40 times. I bought this book thinking it might add some additional insights, but was disappointed. The difference between the two is that in the total money makeover, dave has a very succinct programme for us listeners to follow. In financial peace, it is more of a rambling journey interspersed with religious references. Clearly dave has developed his programme over time and it shows through in the total money makeover. the other reason to recommend total money makeover, over financial peace is that dave narrates his later book. In this book it is someone else who does not portray the same passion and motivation that dave brings to total money makeover. I listen to daves book every month and despite being a brit, living in britain, the key messages are just as applicable. I am working my way out of debt using caves programme. I strongly recommend any listener to look at total money makeover rather than this book as you will be better motivated, have a clear structured programme and be more likley to get out of debt and become wealthy.

  • The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness

    • ABRIDGED (3 hrs and 41 mins)
    • By Dave Ramsey
    • Narrated By Dave Ramsey

    Okay, folks, do you want to turn those fat and flabby expenses into a well-toned budget? Do you want to transform your sad and skinny little bank account into a bulked-up cash machine? Then get with the program, people. There's one sure way to whip your finances into shape, and that's with The Total Money Makeover. It's the simplest, most straight-forward game plan for completely making over your money habits. And it's based on results, not pie-in-the-sky fantasies.

    Alexandra says: "This guy makes sense"
    "Thanks Dave - its working for me already"

    I listen to this book at least once a month and can nearly recite it word for word. I had several false starts to starting this programme, but have finally knuckled down to clear debt. The book sets out a no nonsense approach to clearing debt and building wealth, saving for retirement, saving for the kids education and clearing the mortgage. I live in the UK and am a native brit and yet this book rings true here as much as it does in the US. I find daves approach more sensible than other advice given by the likes of money saving experts which suggests using credit cards to get money back deals, use all your savings to clear debt instead of having a small rainy day fund and clear the highest % rate debt first. Daves approach is completely different and I have found it more logical and it is working for me. Buy this audio book and help to change your economic life. I only wished I had learned this approach 20 years ago - I would be very wealthy now.

  • Kill Decision

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 6 mins)
    • By Daniel Suarez
    • Narrated By Jeff Gurner
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Linda McKinney is a myrmecologist, a scientist who studies the social structure of ants. Her academic career has left her entirely unprepared for the day her sophisticated research is conscripted by unknown forces to help run an unmanned - and thanks to her research, automated - drone army. Odin is the secretive Special Ops soldier with a unique insight into the faceless enemy who has begun to attack the American homeland with drones programmed to seek, identify, and execute targets.

    Madeleine says: "What's that droning sound?"
    "Thanks Leo, and thanks audible"
    If you could sum up Kill Decision in three words, what would they be?

    intense techno thriller

    What did you like best about this story?

    the technology and pace of the book

    Which scene was your favorite?

    jumping out of a plane with a machine gun in order to shoot down a drone

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    done in a single session. could not stop listening

    Any additional comments?

    a great read. I have never listened to this author before and took a gamble based on leo laportes recommendation. looking at the other reviews there are previous books which i need to check out. however, audible does not have the previous ones, or at least not available in the UK. Audible, please obtain the rights to sell the previous material as I am keen to listen. A really good book and highly recommended to anyone who likes cutting edge technology and thrillers.
