Publisher's Summary

Proficere in Latin means to go forward, and in pursuit of profit to the fore Fred Light goes with 1117 couplets as rhythmic as the prosperous esprit of commerce and finance. Profit is envisioned as the best fruition and revealed to bring the earthly rapture of success. Profit to listeners in profusion is No less than opulent in sentences.

This audiobook the busiest happiness reveals, Which every profit-worthy maker feels. "Certainly the oddest if most distinctive book of verse I've seen since Hector was a pup. The depth of your hatred for Keynesian economics, that could sustain you through 1564 tightly wrought couplets, is dumbfounding". (X. J. Kennedy on Shakespeare Versus Keynes).

Unintelligible ...extremely bad narration

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Unintelligible words juggling out ...seems too random

Has Profit me, Hermes! turned you off from other books in this genre?

No it hasn't. There are better books in this category..like "The Bed of Procrustes: Philosophical and Practical Aphorisms" by Nassim Nicholas Taleb...

What didn’t you like about Spencer Bryant’s performance?

Too fast narration and without any pause even between two consecutive poetics.Seems like a 3 hour listen is squeezed into an 2 hour one.

Any additional comments?

It needs some structure and sequence instead of an simple numbered sequence...
