The Only Guide You'll Ever Need for the Right Financial Plan audiobook cover art

Meaty explanations and deep dives into topics.

While it is not really the only guide you'll need, it certainly is a solid choice to help with understanding strategies, solutions, pitfalls, and various asset types. No frills, no reliance upon quirkiness or personality-driven appeals, no sales pitch. I recommend it as part of your overall reading influence in your quest to make good decisions with your personal finances.

I thought I was in for an infomercial type sales pitch when I first started listening. But the book proved to be a very practical, nuts and bolts breakdown, dealing with modern personal financial topics. This book speaks to where real people live their lives. I would say it is among the top five personal finance coaching books currently available.
Only criticism here of the audio book version is that frankly, they should have had someone else read the text. Nancy's voice and speaking style sound like a Rhetoric 101 professor who just got back form her tenth smoke break of the day at 10am. Sorry, not sorry.
Still, overall an excellent book, and I will highly recommend it.

Think and Grow Rich audiobook cover art

Did not regret finally listening to this book. There are some great points. Some of the social biases and examples are outdated and old-timey.

Overall excellent book. It bogs down when he reads off all of the funds for the alternate countries. Other than that, good stuff.
Not a fan of this narrator particularly.

A few of the remarks are dated, such as mentioning a fund or ETF as not existing. However, overall an excellent and practical guide for building your DIY portfolio.

Not a fan of the narrator's reading style - it comes across a bit too smug and snooty, and too self assured. These are not traits intrinsic to Bernstein.

This book concisely and logically sums up many of the PF podcasts I've heard in the past year.

Good to hear one of the author's perspectives in her own words and voice. But was disappointed when I realized I wasn't going to be hearing the actual book read.

A long slog. But an important book.
Key take-aways: Diversify. Invest rather than speculate. Be aware of price.

Overused word: vicissitude.
