    "Appendices?"
    Any additional comments?

    Does anyone know how to access the appendices of this book? When I purchase a book, expect to be able to have access to ALL of the book, especially when the author refers to the appendix many times throughout... maybe web access somewhere?

    Story
    "From one CPA to another"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It is hard to write a book about tax strategies and I give Mr. Kohler credit with the creativity of telling a story. The reviews on Amazon were much more positive so it may be a book that needs to be read. The sound quality was not up to usual standards although the author gave it his best, there should have been some editing. I found the story moved too slow with a payoff that was less then I hoped for.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I liked that the PDF for Appendix B was available and that will be a good visual resource.
    I believe the recommendations to start a business andor do rental Real Estate is solid but takes a great deal of work.
    The major opinion on the self directed IRA as something "the Wall Street Machine" does not want you to know about is very questionable advice. Financial planners and investment people make less but CPAs and custodians make a lot more. I am not saying it can not work; but after researching it for my clients, there are many fees, traps, and hassles...be careful! It sounds great in theory to start a business or buy property inside a qualified account but you still have to follow through on making money. The great part of investing is you put up the capital and others do the work!

    Story
    "Agonizingly slow and not Audible quality recording"
    Would you try another book from Mark J. Kohler and/or Mark J. Kohler?

    N


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    No


    How could the performance have been better?

    Yes


    What character would you cut from What Your CPA Isn't Telling You?

    The author


    Any additional comments?

    I am a small business owner. I could not finish this book. For 45 minutes, the author talks about himself and his wife, trying to tell an engaging story that actually sounds like a skit on Christian radio. I never heard anything valuable AT ALL. Maybe after 45 minutes this book has something useful, but I could take no more than that. Note to author: If this book is supposed to TEACH me something, you can't expect readers to wait so long to hear something useful. Also, if your consternations about CPAs in the beginning makes it sound like you are talking about the boogyman. Seriously?

    Also, head up to the potential buyer of this audible book: The author reads his own book aloud, making mistakes at times, sometimes stopping to catch his breath after run on sentences.

    To Audible/Amazon - This is not what I expect from Audible, and I suggest this book be taken down. The positive reviews must be from friends and family of the author.

    "Absolutely awesome"

    I am a small business owner with more time to listen than to do anything else... I am often working with my hands and doing things by myself allowing me plenty of time to soak up education... This my friends is a great book for tax education, simple and concise, kind of humorous at the same time. I have been a fan of the rich dad series and listened to and read about 6-7 books from their line, this is right on par and a lot shorter... Less technical but still really helpful to get your pallet wet. I am definitely going to purchase Mark's other books. Slightly poor recording of him reading the book (you can pages turning and sometimes a slight noise in the background) however not at all a deterrent to great material! Get it and you won't be disappointed

    "Entertainment and Education at the highest level!"
    Any additional comments?

    Okay, I started my business in my early twenties because I knew that I would, and want to become financially free. Totally financially free! I have read books, took classes, went to seminars-did everything to pursuit this expectation.

    I am in my early thirties now and I am expecting my goals to come to fruition in 2013. This book by Mr. Kohler is amazing! I enjoy listening to books where you can hear the author read their materials just the way that they would want their words to come across, and Mr. Kohler did just that.

    You hear his passion, his sarcasm, his jokes-everything in this audio book that makes his message come to life. As a midsize business owner now I can tell you that Mr. Kohler hit the nail on the head when he mentions that "bookkeeping/record keeping" is one of the major challenges that small businesses face and overcome. I am rigorously perfecting this science.

    Small business owners who figure this out early are on their way to financial success. This book is of great value to anyone starting a business.

    The information in this book was invaluable. Although the reader stumbled through most of it, the knowledge gained was well worth the listen

    Story
    "Not what was expected"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    It is a very well written story, however he refers to what his previous CPA didn't tell him, and going over business plans for having a small business. He doesn't get into actual details that don't revolve around him, but often just states you need to ask your CPA.


    Has What Your CPA Isn't Telling You turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not really, it did have a few good ideas, that he had followed and was given. I would have preferred his CPA to write the book.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Mark J. Kohler’s performances?

    Possibly, he reads well


    Did What Your CPA Isn't Telling You inspire you to do anything?

    Just contact a CPA.
