The greatest investment advisor of the 20th century, Benjamin Graham taught and inspired people worldwide. Graham's philosophy of "value investing" - which shields investors from substantial error and teaches them to develop long-term strategies - has made The Intelligent Investor the stock market Bible ever since its original publication in 1949.

get to the point. lots of rambling on about historical figures. disturbing and confusing when they use the term "now" to mean 1972. getting a refund on this. if all they wanted to do was reinforce the definition of investor, they could have done that without boring me so much that I had to stop listening in chapter 1.

Will becoming a millionaire really set you free? Americans continue to work longer and harder to pursue freedom based on the belief that more money and success will lead to a better life, yet most feel less free than ever. While the typical American trades the vast majority of their time and energy with the hope that someday in the future they will be free, they tragically fail to realize that their intense pursuit of financial success is the very thing robbing them of the freedom they desire. So where do we find freedom?

I really enjoyed everything that this book had to offer. Although, I can't stand anything about religion so that part of the message was annoying. But it was easy enough for me to just ignore that. The rest of it made total sense.

it sounds like they got a robot to try to do the narration for this summary. I made the mistake and thought I was actually buying the book but then realized it was the summary of the book. I have to go by the book now because the summary is unbearable to listen to.

“There are at least two kinds of games,” states James P. Carse as he begins this extraordinary book. “One could be called finite, the other infinite.” Finite games are the familiar contests of everyday life; they are played in order to be won, which is when they end. But infinite games are more mysterious. Their object is not winning but ensuring the continuation of play. The rules may change, the boundaries may change, even the participants may change - as long as the game is never allowed to come to an end.

I quit after about 40 minutes. And after scanning ahead the whole book is exactly the same. it doesn't seem like there's any point to any of this.
