Add the bibliography as a pdf file

What did you like best about this story?

The speaker was outstanding

Any additional comments?

Dr. Goodman references the bibliography and a list of resources many times in the book, yet Audible/Great Courses doesn't see fit to provide audible listeners these documents. It's a shame, I would have purchased many more of them if they had.

Tackling the fundamental question asked by all taxpayers - How can I save on taxes? - attorney and CPA Mark J. Kohler empowers you to dismiss standard CPA viewpoints like "your tax payment is what it is" and "you just make too much money." Simplified through the mastery of storytelling, Kohler invites you to immerse yourself in the compelling tale of a typical family's tax awakening. Through their journey, you'll discover critical but underutilized tax strategies to achieve huge tax savings.

Does anyone know how to access the appendices of this book? When I purchase a book, expect to be able to have access to ALL of the book, especially when the author refers to the appendix many times throughout... maybe web access somewhere?

Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their successes over and over? People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why.

Don't buy this if you are expecting the author to give you guidance on finding out how to start with why. The author uses the same examples over and over and over again. If this philosophy was applicable to people in addition to companies, there would have been some instruction how to apply it as such. The book could have bee condensed into an hour and should have been titled, "let me tell you why some companies have failed".

animated

Was How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free worth the listening time?

no

Any additional comments?

The entire book was nothing but motivational speaking. I expected and paid for HOW to do retire happy, wild and free, not WHY I should.
