  • Reminiscences of a Stock Operator

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 55 mins)
    • By Edwin Lefevre
    • Narrated By Rick Rohan

    First published in 1923, this lightly fictionalized biography of Jesse Livermore, one of the greatest market speculators ever, is widely regarded as one of best investment books of all time. Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is the resource that generations of investors have turned to when they needed deeper insight into their own investing habits and those of others. Listen to this work, featuring narrator Rick Rohan, and you'll soon discover your portfolio growing in new and unexpected ways!

    Mike says: "A Good Listen"
    "Must read"

    This is a must read for anyone (day traders, investors etc). Very educational! Book introduces you to many things including bucket shops, the fallacy of following the crowd and how fundamentally nothing changes in wall street. This book is an eye opener and following some of the simple principles mentioned will get anyone ahead of the crowd and will make some $. I continue to listen to this book regularly.

  • The Little Book of Common Sense Investing

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 7 mins)
    • By John C. Bogle
    • Narrated By Thom Pinto
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    To learn how to make index investing work for you, there's no better mentor than legendary mutual-fund industry veteran John C. Bogle. Over the course of his long career, Bogle, founder of the Vanguard Group and creator of the world's first index mutual-fund, has relied primarily on index investing to help Vanguard's clients build substantial wealth. Now, with The Little Book of Common Sense Investing, he wants to help you do the same.

    Jerry says: "Repeats endlessly"
    "Invest in Index Fund.If you get that, don't waste$"

    Invest in index funds is the only message from the book. The authors mentions this over and over again in this book and quotes many successful investors backing that. If someone is not sold on index fund then I would recommend this book. Otherwise save the cost of buying this book and instead add it to your index fund.

  • One Up On Wall Street

    • ABRIDGED (2 hrs and 12 mins)
    • By Peter Lynch
    • Narrated By Peter Lynch

    Peter Lynch, one of the most successful investors of all time, shows you how to use what you already know to make money in the market. You'll discover why smart money is not so smart - and why you may be a better stock picker than the pros, how to follow your hunches and back them up with facts, how to disregard reports on the economy and pick your own time to buy and sell, and how to determine which types of stocks are right for you. Lynch is the former manager of the $9 billion Fidelity Magellan Fund, where he earned investors a $190,000 return on a $10,000 investment.

    Ken says: "Learning a lot."
    "Beginners bible."

    I had bought the book few years back when I started investing. Bought the audio book recently so I could listen anytime. Must read for anyone who wants to invest in the market. This book will help you to avoid many common mistakes most common investors commit. Save yourself thousands and make your self informed by spending few $. Mr. Lynch explains the many investment concepts in lay man terms.

  • The Alchemy of Finance

    • ABRIDGED (2 hrs and 51 mins)
    • By George Soros
    • Narrated By Grover Gardner

    George Soros, called "a superstar among money managers" by The New York Times, shares the investment strategies he uses to read the mind of the market.

    Joel says: "Interesting but not new"
    "Research paper for academicians"

    Research paper for academicians is what this book is. I bought this book with an idea getting some insight into George Soros investment style, his failures, success and to understand his decision making process. What this book offers is an explanation of how the author thinks the market works and explains this in technical terms. Most of it went over my head. This is not for an average investor. Someone doing a research on financial markets could glean something meaningful from the book
