Whether you're interested in Fundamental or Technical trading, this book has snippets of wisdom for everyone. It won't tell you a particular stock to buy, but it will help you understand a variety of aspect of the market and help you define your philosophy of trading. Both the introductions and the readings themselves are enlightening. Very enjoyable listening!

Very interesting overview of different investment perspectives ranging from the pure horse sense approach to the almost esoteric analysis explained by the practitioners themselves. Excellent narration captures each individual style.
This book is both interesting and useful. It offers exposure to a wide variety of investing related topics. I believe most individual investors will find something useful in this book. If you are looking at some different investing books I recommend this one and Peter Lynch's "One Up on Wall Street". I recommend these two above "Forbes: Greatest Investing Stories" and "Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits (Philip Fisher).
A collection of essays by famous and successful investors, this book is a cursory but nonetheless interesting look into the thought processes and investing philosophies of Wall Street Legends.
Some essays are stronger than others (I wouldn't recommend using hem line lengths as a barometer of market health), and a few concern topics that may be of less interest to the average investor (though the principles of trading commodity futures are widely applicable).
I'd recommend this book as a supplement to any investor's library shelf, but the scattershot nature of the format prevent it from being anything more. For beginning investors and those seeking to expand their financial intelligence it should also be a great jumping off point to read more of the various authors in depth.
It's a collection of fairly interesting stories from some of our times most successful investors. If you are unfamiliar with them this book could work as a way to choose which style you like the most and then I suggest you to continue with books about or written by that investor/investors.
With a collection like this it's hard to get a good and consistent story with clear points, but it's also clearly stated it's a collection of different investors stories.
I have owned this audiobook for a few years now. It was the first audiobook I purchased from amazon. I enjoyed the collective wisdom from the all star cast whose methods range from commodities,trading options ,shorting stocks and the Elliot wave theory method. Like the masters buffet and lynch I also enjoyed the lesser known authors and their methodologies. The collective cast of names along with their wisdom there is sure to be some benefit no matter what your investing strategy. A good listen and very well narrated!
This is a collection of articles from various authors writing about investing. The book covers a good variety of topics. While this is not a beginner's guide to investing, it has information of value for anyone interested in commentary on various investment topics.
I am planning to listen to this book a number of times, to really absorb, learn & retain more and more of the timeless insight and wisdom packed into such an easy and captivating listen!
this is the first book I have come across that has this kind of information packed into such an easy to understand format.
Richard Poe is actually very good to listen to especially compared to a lot of the other audio books I've listened to. I would say he is great story teller, it is not like you are trying to listen to the information, instead you just get absorbed into the story of the information & there for remember more through the experience of it all.
it has really opened my mind to the different ways to look at investing and the different areas of investing, and to look at what is happening in the world around me to know what areas to focus my efforts on. it helps me know what to be mindful of when investing to help manage risk.
it is real short but I found I am still able to get a lot out of it!
It's possible of having a few insights on the investment styles of this "audiobook"(although I have great difficulty of seeing it as a complete book, because it is so short), the essays are really to quick to deliver the depth required for the useful appliance on the hard practice of financial practice.
Not from the same publishers.
A bit too fast.
Because of the above reasons.
This is very good and will give you some great tips. I think that this is probably aimed at those with at least a basic knowledge of shares and investments but even if you don't then I am sure that you will still enjoy this.
