The Stock Market Crash of 1929 audiobook cover art

Short & Concise Intro to Crash & Great Depression

A good, educational introduction to what preceded the '29 crash and what followed, but a little bit on the dry side. Most of the book is actually about the Great Depression. I was a bit surprised how little it actually has in it about the Crash itself or the workings of the stock market at that time.

Great book about LTCM. A must for finance geeks or people seeking to understand WTF went wrong with this fund back in the late 90s. Odd performance (read by author) by author but quirky voice lent a bit of charm to it.

Not the most compelling story in the world but the porn-industry slant is fun and the narrator reads in a sexy, sultry kind of way. Nice pulp/noir entertainment.

Struggled to finish it. The different voices are kind of fun but the story was kind of bad and not interesting.

I have always felt like I needed to read this book, but could never finish it. So listened to it instead. it's absolutely interminable and excruciatingly difficult to follow. Probably was meant to be read not listened to. I guess I'm glad I finally "read" this book but IDK if it was worth the 25 hours I put in over the past two months.

This is an insightful and engaging book about romantic relationships. Its perspective will help you understand yourself and improve your relationships with others. "Quiz" and "Homework" parts would play out better in a print book, an you probably have to advance past them. But this book is packed with great insight, especially for anyone seeking to have more fulfilling relationships.

I will never look at FIFA the same way again. Must read for any true fan of international football, or anyone who calls themselves a football aficionado and cultural citizen.
