    More than a million copies of this indispensible investment classic have been sold since its first publication. This fresh version is completely revised by author Burton G. Malkiel to reflect modern financial concerns and trends.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Random Walk Down Wall Street to be better than the print version?

    I benefitted by listening to this book, however the print version is better. The print version is newer and takes into account the stock market crash of 2008. Also, it has some useful graphs that can't be explained in narration.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Random Walk Down Wall Street?

    The most memorable moment of this book is the idea that chimpanzees throwing darts at random stocks may do just as well or better than a broker.


    What does Kerin McCue bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This is a good read for the car. The narrator does a fine job.


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

    Malkiel Burton's writing had me LOLing more than I expected for an investment book. It kept me interested and I've listened to it multiple times.


    Any additional comments?

    I took Malkiel Burton's advice and it's paying off nicely. His style of investment management is fairly low risk, so it's not too nerve-wracking.
