"Investing means different things to different people. In fact, there are different investments for the rich, poor, and middle class. Rich Dad’s Guide to Investing is a long-term guide for anyone who wants to become a rich investor and invest in what the rich invest in. As the title states, it is a "guide" and offers no guarantees... only guidance.” (Robert Kiyosaki)

I love all of Robert kiyosaki's books this was no different. if you want to how to guide it's not the right one for you, but if you can figure out how to do things on your own once you have the background knowledge to make it happen, it works

By the time you've finished Accounting for the Numberphobic, you'll be reading your financial dashboard like a pro. This audiobook takes the terror out of accounting, as it demystifies - in plain English - documents like the Net Income Statement, Cash Flow Statement, and Balance Sheet.

loved it everything was in simple language it broke down the entire income statement balance sheet. She gave examples of changes in different aspects of the company's financial statement. I would definitely recommend this to anyone, even someone doing personal financial management.

  • The Physics of Wall Street

After the economic meltdown of 2008, Warren Buffett famously warned, "beware of geeks bearing formulas." But as James Weatherall demonstrates, not all geeks are created equal. While many of the mathematicians and software engineers on Wall Street failed when their abstractions turned ugly in practice, a special breed of physicists has a much deeper history of revolutionizing finance.

Where does The Physics of Wall Street rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I finished this book in one day. The subject matter was interesting, and was a good basic overview of the history of financial markets and complex mathematics.

What did you like best about this story?

The author sited interesting problems throughout history which I had no idea related to each other.

Have you listened to any of Kaleo Griffith’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No.

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

DuPont used its experience with women's leggings to help drive the production of the atom bomb.
