- By: Robert T. Kiyosaki

"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)
Learnt allot even though there may be some fluff

Insightful and philosophical
What made the experience of listening to Rich Dad's Guide to Investing the most enjoyable?
Very interesting not only in the direct message, but the indirect zen like messages of how we look at wealth and what real wealth actually is. As Robert Kiyosaki points out, people who only count money and look for money will never have the money they so desire. Happiness is not a product of cash, it is a product of attaining true understanding of how things work.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Robert, because he writes directly of his experience of striving to understand the different view of life through both fathers.
What about Tim Wheeler’s performance did you like?
Seemed to fully grasp the concepts of the material. Even when it was repetitive, he keeps it flowing.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When Robert describes his fathers rise in the academic world only to find himself at the mercy of a defeated system. This strikes home with so many people I have known who worked for companies for many years only to find themselves abandoned in midlife. They drank the kool-aid that led them to the end of the road with no exit.
Any additional comments?
Even though it seems repetitive, the message needs repeating. The point of the story needs to be emphasized.

- The Transformation of Business, Democracy, and Everyday Life
- By: Robert B. Reich
- Narrated by: Dick Hill
- Length: 9 hrs and 38 mins
Since the 1970s, and notwithstanding three recessions, the U.S. economy has soared. American capitalism has been a triumph, and it has spread throughout the world. At the same time, argues the former U.S. secretary of labor, Robert B. Reich, the effectiveness of democracy in America has declined. It has grown less responsive to the citizenry, and people are feeling more and more helpless as a result.

Superb - Why we can never go back to the economies
What made the experience of listening to Supercapitalism the most enjoyable?
Mind boggling in scope. Super Capitalism is the story of the releasing of the genie from the bottle in global terms. Robert Reich explains it in astoundingly simple terms but the effect is complex and rich in details and under lying social anxiety.
What other book might you compare Supercapitalism to and why?
Carl Sagan's Cosmos. It is ground breaking understanding of the state of the art of where we are as mankind develops. An in depth statement as to why we are the way we are and how we are shaping a new social fabric.
Which scene was your favorite?
How globalization has effected every society on earth and interlinked everyone and everything. Everyone within the confines of the new Supercapitalism will be integrated and actual war within those confines will be a thing of the past.
If you could give Supercapitalism a new subtitle, what would it be?
The New Reality.
Any additional comments?
After reading this, one begins to understand the absurdity of the arguments we hear every day in the media. It is like the pundits who argue against the reality of climate change, racial equality, gay marriage, etc. As I like to refer to it as the future laughing at the inane arguments against inevitability.
