Hungarian by birth, Nicolas Darvas trained as an economist at the University of Budapest. Reluctant to remain in Hungary until either the Nazis or the Soviets took over, he fled at the age of 23 with a forged exit visa and fifty pounds sterling to stave off hunger in Istanbul, Turkey. During his off hours as a dancer, he read some 200 books on the market and the great speculators, spending as much as eight hours a day studying.

What did you like best about How I Made $2,000,000 in the Stock Market? What did you like least?

The story and the reading of the story are fine. However, there are paragraphs omitted, even pages in some areas. This, at least to me anyway, is not what 'UNABRIDGED' means.

I found that some of the abridged paragraphs contained interesting insights from the author and not something that I would have skimmed over if I were actually reading the printed version.

If you're going to put the words 'UNABRIDGED' on an audiobook, don't remove anything.
