Publisher's Summary

Supermoney may be even more relevant today than when it was first published nearly 25 years ago. Written in the bright and funny style that became Adam Smith's trademark, this book gives a view inside institutions, professionals, and the nature of markets that has rarely been shown before or since.

"Adam Smith" was the first to introduce an obscure fund manager in Omaha, Nebraska, named Warren Buffett. In this new edition, Smith provides a fresh perspective in an updated Preface that contextualizes the applicability of the markets of the 1960s and 1970s to today's markets. Things change, but sometimes the more they change, the more they stay the same.

    "Terrible"

    This audio book is NOT Complete.
    It's a 300 pages book and the audio book only reads about 50 pages(chapter 4).

    Audible should give me my money back

    "Supermoney"

    This was the biggest rip-off I've ever seen from Audible, ever. This was listed as "unabridged"...covers a tiny bit of one topic then a small snippet of another then it is done. Seriously, Audible should just pull this from the library or at least charge maybe $5 for it.........TOTAL ripoff.

    "Amazing story, amazingly bad narration"
    Where does Supermoney rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a pretty solid book if you want a glimpse into the bull market of the 50's-60's. It really shines especially if you look at the excesses during the time and compare it to the dot com bubble. This BOOK is up there for me. probably top 30th percentile for books I have gotten the content from. The narration makes it almost unbearable.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Adam Zink?

    Stephen Hoye.

    "Great book; terrible performance and editing"
    What didn’t you like about Adam Zink’s performance?

    Sounds like a high school senior is reading the book. In addition, the editing is worse than amateur- a lot of sentences have clear demarcations where an edit was inserted at a different volume!

    "Bad book, bad narrator, bad story"

    This book is read by a narrator that is reading the book for a first time. Slow, choppy, hard to follow.

    The story may be ok, but it sure sounds like the fine print my bank has written on back of their statement!!

    The recording quality is bad too. Keeps getting louder and lower. Impossible to follow.

    Audible should take this book OFF its libarary for good. Or get some else to record it.

    Story
    "Basic and necessary history for stock investing!"
    Would you listen to Supermoney again? Why?

    Supermoney covers the late 1960's and early 1970's boom and bust period. Discusses how the market functioned and then how it became dysfunctional and even fooled the pros. Discusses Buffet and Graham. Proposes that the small investor can make good returns through patiences not hyper-trading.

    This audiobook was originally damaged and that is why it received bad early reviews. Its been fixed.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Covers Warren Buffett's early years and the development of his investing strategy.
