The brothers Tom and David Gardner - co-founders of the investment advisory group "The Motley Fool" - ran a web experiment in which interested investors could track Tom Gardner’s every move as he managed a $1 million portfolio.
Lessons gleaned from that experiment are recounted in this audiobook, narrated by Tom and David themselves. Perfect for rookie investors who want to understand investment theory and see it played out, this audiobook will introduce dividend investing, stock picking, blue-chip bargains, and all that other good, foolish stuff.
The research, the stories, and the results that underpin this audio stem from the revolutionary and wildly successful Motley Fool Million Dollar Portfolio. a one-of-a-kind web experiment in which individual investors follow along as Motley Fool co-founder Tom Gardner invests and manages $1 million of The Motley Fool's own money.
Listeners are offered a first-class education in building, growing, and defending an individual portfolio, one investment strategy at a time. From learning to think like an investor to finding a first stock, from international investing to community-based online tools, this audiobook takes the reader through the essential strategies for building any portfolio, no matter how small its start or how big its ambitions.

I tend to like audiobooks read by the authors because you get a sense of the author's passion for the topic. This was no exception. This is great introduction for beginners as well as an excellent way to get a refresher course for those that may have been away from trading for a few years.
My only negative comment is that each chapter ends with what is effectively an advertisement for signing up on their website for fee-based newsletters where you can learn more. I am actually a subscriber to one of their newsletters but I could have done without the ads. After all, I've already paid for the book.
