The Only Three Questions That Count audiobook cover art

Disappointed

Overall
2 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 01-29-11

I found the 3 questions perhaps philosophically provocative at times, but not practical guides. Unlike his father, Ken seems largely focused on relative performance and predicting market directions. His grandstanding and political biases became very tiresome and I suspect they dull his edge as an investor. After listening to this book, I can't help but suspect that Fisher is more skilled at marketing himself than at investing. Either way, however, I didn't find much in this volume that helps me be a better investor. Hopefully other listeners will profit more.

My Life in France audiobook cover art

Well narrated

Overall
4 out of 5 stars

OK, the reader's French isn't perfect, but if you know some French you can tell what she's aiming for and if you don't ... well then who cares! More importantly, she pulls everything else off with a beautiful, lively performance.

The book conveys a nice sense of Julia Childs' personality, her experience learning to cook in a country she's crazy about, and some sense of the zeitgeist during the late forties and fifties.

The Brain audiobook cover art

Too technical

Overall
2 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 08-28-09

This book has way too much technical detail about physiology and anatomy for the casual listener. More appropriate for serious students of human biology.
