    Any additional comments?

    The title is the main premise of this excellent book. The writer does an outstanding job reviewing, through personal interviews, the varied investment strategies of a handful of famous traders. It was amazing to me that the writer was able to get interviews with all of these people, and that they appeared to be quite open about their general investment philosophies. Equally amazing was that while all were extremely successful, many had very different attitudes and styles of investing. The author summarizes his findings in the end. Other than the title of this review, the other consistent theme, although not universal, was that these hedge fund managers stick with their trades, even when they are going against them. Well worth the read.

  • Endgame: The End of The Debt Supercycle And How It Changes Everything

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 40 mins)
    • By John Mauldin
    • Narrated By Sean Pratt
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Hundreds of books have been written about the financial crisis that engulfed the world after Lehman Brothers went bankrupt. But what if the bigger financial crisis is ahead of us, not behind us?As John Mauldin and Jonathan Tepper deftly illustrate in this controversial audio book, the crisis was more than a half-century in the making. The Great Financial Crisis, however, was merely Act I.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If you read the title, you got all of the information this book has to offer. The author provides only the most basic of analysis, and even for this cites others, specifically Rogoff, over and over again. He takes the basic premise that is in the title and repeats it over and over and over again, using anecdotal stories, not facts, figures, or data. I really dislike it when authors do this, because it screams that they wanted the book revenue, or to get their name out there, in other words writing the book was about them, not about the person who was going to read it. I agree with the author's premise, but lets face it, so do millions of others, and this is written about constantly on the internet, and in the non-mainstream financial press. To make this book compelling the author would need to cite something new, new data, or a new way of looking at the old data. He does none of this. I turned it off half way through. Spend your money elsewhere.
