    As a strategy consultant to Goldman Sachs for more than 30 years, Charles D. Ellis developed close relationships with many of the firm's past and present leaders around the world. In The Partnership he probes deeply into the most important chapters in the firm's history, revealing the key events and decisions that tell the colorful, character-driven story of how Goldman Sachs became what it is today.

    I enjoyed listening to the history aspect of Goldman and that of the stock market. I was amazed at the billions of dollars that were being made in the 50's and 60's. I can see how one could get hooked on all the activity and money to be made on Wall Street, even today. It was a long read, but kept my interest on many car rides.

  • Freakonomics: Revised Edition

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 55 mins)
    • By Steven D. Levitt, Stephen J. Dubner

    Story

    Steven D. Levitt is not a typical economist. He is a much-heralded scholar who studies the riddles of everyday life, from cheating and crime to sports and child-rearing, and whose conclusions turn the conventional wisdom on its head. Thus the new field of study contained in this audiobook: Freakonomics. Levitt and co-author Stephen J. Dubner show that economics is, at root, the study of incentives: how people get what they want, or need, especially when other people want or need the same thing.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Freakonomics to be better than the print version?

    I enjoyed listening to the book. The themes where easy to follow.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved the compassion between teachers and sumo wrestlers.


    What does Stephen J. Dubner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A new prospective way of looking at life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The long term effect of abortions.


    Any additional comments?

    I felt it was worth my time listing to the book.
