Not really Unnabridged.

Would you try another book from Jeremy Siegel and/or Grover Gardner?

I had just heard a recommendation for this book from Motley Fool and wanted to listen to it. I was very surprised the book was Unabridged and under 5 hours long, but I went with it. At the very end of the reading, the audio company notes that it is Based On the book. So it is a Unabridged abridgement.

Would you recommend Stocks for the Long Run to your friends? Why or why not?

I would recommend the real book. This short audio book is OK, but not what I thought I was getting.

What three words best describe Grover Gardner’s performance?

He just fine.

Could you see Stocks for the Long Run being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Nope, Never.

Any additional comments?

It was so clear from Audible that this was Unabridged. If you want a short essay about the real book, this is great. If you want details, this probably isn't what you need.

Awesome compressed information

This book clearly explains stocks, bonds, futures, and options in a very clear way with examples. Talks about the recessions, explains types of investment including buy and hold, arbitration, and technical analysis.
The only con was the performance, sounds like a robot reading the book.

A lot of valuable incite.

A lot of valuable incite. I can't say that I personally agree with every opinion held by the author, however it is significant to know the herd mentality to strategize.
