    "Shallow understanding"

    Author has simply listed out the investments. Very little in depth analysis. Reader is mechanical.

    "Audio Quality Horrific"
    What disappointed you about Moats?

    Overall, the book was just OK. Quite repetitive, and once you heard about 2-3 companies, everything was the same.

    Biggest complaint though was the audio quality. It sounded like it was recorded in some guy's basement. COUNTLESS mispronunciations, and grammatical mistakes. The guy messed up so many times, it made it nearly impossible to listen. There were major errors and gaps in the audio where the reader made a mistake, but no one ever edited it out. By far the lowest quality audio I have ever heard on Audible.

    "Some useful info, but mostly pointless"

    Lots of repetition, no real analysis. A few of the case studies were interesting but most were just regurgitated basic facts that gave really little insight. The voiceover was relatively poor too. Overall a waste of money.

    "A very useful book."
    Where does Moats rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top ten. Absolutely fantastic book with a lot of very useful info. I keep getting back to this book every time I need to make sure I know what the moat is and means for any company.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I was impressed by specification of all examples of moats.


    Have you listened to any of Jeffrey A. Hering’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No, I didn't. It was very good.


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

    I love this book for enormous contribution to anyone interesting in understanding what a moat means for the companies .


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you .
