Don't look at this book as a
Reminiscences of a Stock Operator but not as good as far as gaining insight into trading.
The narrator was excellent. The book was read with the passion of someone who actually lived the life of Sykes.
I have many of Pema's books and audio books, even bought some from Sounds True site.
This audio is nothing more than a sound bite from a talk from Pema. It is nothing more then Pema talking about how to sit.
This does not "sound true" to me, taking bits and pieces of a talk and selling it. Get real.
Stop allowing sound true to chop up talks in this manner.
Buy A Chakra Meditation by Glenn Harrold. He has a long version 45 minutes and a shorter 25 minute version. The audio is very good, great sound, and speaks at a tone that is very clear.
His voice is very jarring, this does not work when you are trying to meditate.
Also instead of spending some money on special effects on this audio, such as an Echo he says... "now, now, now, now..." like faking a echo sound. IT IS hilarious! But again laughing at this audio is not helping for meditation either.
No, Jon's narration is robotic. If you want to sleep then listen to this book. Frankly it was so much so I could gained very little from this book. When I was able to keep my attention on the robotic voice I did have some insight. I think the book is overall good, but really get another person to read it and re-publish the audio book.
Have another person narrate the book. Jon reads with no emotion, no emphasis any word or idea. I have tried to listen to this book many times. The last time was a flight and I fell into a deep sleep.
Speaks very mono-tone.
I would not purchase any audible book that Jon narrates.
I have read many books on meditation. I have been a fan of Tolle for a very long time, but I have to say this book by Brach is far more reaching and more practical than any book I have read by Tolle. Tolle I have seemed to listen to countless times, but found Radical Acceptance to provide clearer direction on what action to take day by day. She gives very clear examples of how to practice mindfulness, meditation, and work through some emotional issues.
Her reading is wonderful, to the point, read with emotion. She reads this book as if she was the author. Excellent!
My nephew told me he enjoyed the written book. So I thought I would try it for the ride to work. I like Sci-Fi but have to say this book is so badly written with terrible characters that it is so bad that it should be a -1 on the rating scale. I should have returned it, just TERRIBLE!
I have to say I like the play-like narration but the story is so bad I could not finish it.
It seems so interesting that such a simple idea (4 questions) could be so powerful. I really enjoyed the book and thought the audio program would be nice to have for the drive to work. I thought the audio program was going to be the author reading the book, but it was wonderful that it was people speaking live as Katie takes them through the 4 questions. Don't let this simple idea (4 questions) stop you from taking in this material...."Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." — Albert Einstein
Get to the point! You get the feeling he had to put filler and more filler!
While listening I thought geez is he really still talking about the same thing? I started fast forwarding then finally I gave up, I could not take it anymore.
Yes. Just like all the Market Wizard books there is much insight that can be gained to help in trading.
The actionable ideas, the honesty of traders that had huge losses, and huge wins, and what they learned.
It was tough to determine at times (chapter 1 & 2) if he was asking the question or answering. Then in all the other chapters he changed is tone when asking questions and answering so it was more enjoyable.
Yes. I listened to it twice and read the book twice. If you have traded (not investing but trading) you will gain many insights from this book.
Livermore and the owners of the bucket shops. The bucket shop owners were a bunch of scammers, modern day Bear Sterns.
Rohan is by far the BEST narrator I have heard. He puts so much feeling into the reading of the book, he made is so much more “real.”
No way, it is 16 hours.
This is not only an audio book, but an investment expense!
