Any additional comments?

i am happy that i bought this. other courses seem to fragmented and got me frustrated but this course is very well structured. my only disappointment was that the PDF does not contain a review of what is covered in the audio books.

this is how all books should be like.

well written and jam packed with content. you won't find any fluff material in this book.

this book is more about improving your life then it is about money so I think the title doesn't give it justice.

if your looking for a guide on how to be more successful in any endeavor this book is for you.

this is a great book for anyone looking to learn the strategies behind value trading.

the contents include a 5 step system that must be followed before buying a stock in order to remove any emotion and misinformation with your investents

after listening to this book I feel I have a good idea how to determine if a company is under valued but I feel that step 5 should be step 1. step 5 is seeing if the stock is at or near it's 52 week low. because it's a lot of work involved in the other 4 steps to only find that it is trading at a high point.

This book is dedicated to my stock trading mentor, Nicolas Darvas. Although I never met him, he has taught me more about stock trading and investing than anyone else. I hope this book does justice to his investing principles and memory.

Hungarian by birth, Nicolas Darvas trained as an economist at the University of Budapest. Reluctant to remain in Hungary until either the Nazis or the Soviets took over, he fled at the age of 23 with a forged exit visa and fifty pounds sterling to stave off hunger in Istanbul, Turkey. During his off hours as a dancer, he read some 200 books on the market and the great speculators, spending as much as eight hours a day studying.

this is a story about a man just getting into the stock market with $3000 and with a creative strategy, a lot of trading and a bit of luck managed to make 2M in 6.5 years. inspiring in that this man knew what he wanted to do and practiced every day to master this skill but also annoying that this book is made up 70% of the author listing off the stock trades he made.

the method that he uses is only breifly described in comparison to the rest of the content (listing off stock trades) which was what brought me to this book in the first place. I should also mention that the story in this book is based on his trading in the mid 1950s.

overall I am just interested enough about this method to check out his website but I am very disappointed that he did not cover his stock picking strategy in more detail.

  • Freakonomics

Steven D. Levitt is not a typical economist. He is a much-heralded scholar who studies the riddles of everyday life, from cheating and crime to sports and child-rearing, and whose conclusions turn the conventional wisdom on its head. Thus the new field of study contained in this audiobook: Freakonomics. Levitt and co-author Stephen J. Dubner show that economics is, at root, the study of incentives: how people get what they want, or need, especially when other people want or need the same thing.

Have you ever walked into a room and couldn't remember what you went there for? Have you ever grasped the hand of a potential client and then when the handshake broke, the name seemed to disappear from your memory? Or have you ever left a prospect or an important meeting and as you drove away remembered a key point that you should have shared with them? The problem is NOT with your memory. The problem is with the "Filing System" your brain currently uses to store and retrieve memory items.

If you could sum up Memory Improvement in three words, what would they be?

works for everyone

What other book might you compare Memory Improvement to and why?

i haven't listened to anything that compares to this book

Any additional comments?

For anyone who has watched the television show The Mentalist you will be familiar with the character Patrick Jane's uncanny ability to recall seemingly every detail after entering a situation with his mind trick called his "Mind Palace". while watching the show you may feel that a memory like his is just a made up skill just for the show but after listening to Memory Improvement: How to Improve Your Memory in Just 30 Days i can tell you that it is a real skill and anyone can learn it.

this book is 30 chapters long and is designed to be read over the course of 30 days, each chapter (with the exception of 2, 4 and 15) is around 10 minutes long when listening and only takes a few minutes to practice the skills in each chapter.

This is yet another one of lifes skills that i wish i was taught in school as it applies to real life but for everyone on the fence about getting this, if you desire a better memory it takes a little work but not as much as you think to actually see results.
