Would you listen to Financial Peace Revisited again? Why?

Forever, because I don't want to go back in debt again, it's not fun.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Financial Peace Revisited?

I love the idea of being able to hear Sharon, Dave's wife side of the story, although I was wondering why is her voice sounds way older??

Which scene was your favorite?

The part where Dave was going broke and was putting gas in his Jaguar on a gas station and thought: .."Only in America could you drive a Jaguar and not have the money to put gas in it!" That was a wake-up call.

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

Too many to pinpoint. You have to listen to the book.

Any additional comments?

"Financial Peace Revisited" is what this book says, a RE-VISIT. I am now out of debt after 3 1/2 years of following the baby steps from the book "The Total Money Makeover", so reading that book again won't make that much effect on where I am now. What Dave has done is to cater an audience like me who are now out of debt and is moving forward to a new life, the book is like a "Refresher" course to kind of cement what I have experience and accomplished getting out of debt.

Dave also did a good job of choosing Nick Sullivan to narrate this audio book. I like listening to Dave but 3 1/2 years of hearing his voice literally everyday is getting too much, and Nicks voice is refreshingly new and a good break. Also I think Nick totally captured the emotion of what this book is saying. Its like hearing Dave in a different voice. I would like to commend Nick Sullivan on doing a fantastic job narrating this book.

Trading is a battle between you and the market. And while you might not be a financial professional, that doesn't mean you can't win this battle.

Would you try another book from Kathy Lien and Boris Schlossberg and/or Caroline Shaffer?

Kathy Lien and Boris Schlossberg do a good service for traders specially in the FX world with their materials.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

none.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I'm still wondering if it really is a real person or Apple's Siri that is doing the narration...

Was Millionaire Traders worth the listening time?

Yes, although the "Siri" type voicing is really bothering.
