Publisher's Summary

The classic best seller by Benjamin Graham, perhaps the greatest investment advisor of the 20th century, The Intelligent Investor has taught and inspired hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. Since its original publication in 1949, Benjamin Graham's book has remained the most respected guide to investing, due to his timeless philosophy of "value investing", which helps protect investors against areas of (possible) substantial error and teaches them to develop long-term strategies which they will be comfortable with down the road.

Among this audiobook's special features are the use of numerous comparisons of pairs of common stocks to bring out their elements of strength and weakness and the construction of investment portfolios designed to meet specific requirements of quality and price attractiveness.

    "Garbage"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Nobody


    What was most disappointing about Benjamin Graham’s story?

    No logic chapter breaks, cannot reasonably match it up with a print version. Absolutely useless.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Nothing. Can't even use it.

    "Solid, but not much depth"

    Good for someone who has no clue where to start, but not detailed enough for those whose already have their feet wet and may be looking for more detailed advice

    Story
    "Now I understand why so many people love this book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Intelligent Investor to be better than the print version?

    Nothing ever really beats the original, but it is a close second.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The ideas are simply expressed, even if it was written so long ago, it still holds true today.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    This movie won't make you a millionaire overnight, but it will help prevent you from going broke!


    Any additional comments?

    People in the financial world have touted this book as being one of the best, and after listening to it, I can see why!

    Story
    "Goes up to 1972, otherwise a great audio"

    It assumes that listener already has some background and knows terms like stocks, bonds and their basic classification. What is bull or bear market, etc.

    Quick and educational.,

    "Sad and a bit dated"

    the most recent reference is from the 70's. It does give a enjoyable history of Stock, Prefered Stk and Bonds but it is very negative on purpose to ward off novice investors with plans on making a fortune in the stock market.

    "Couldn't get past a third of the book"

    I tried so hard to keep on listening, but this sounds like the raging of a person who lost money in the stock market.

    Would you try another book from Benjamin Graham and/or Bill McGowan?

    "not for stock markets"

    find something else. its about how to invest when you have multi-million $ capital and yet don't expect to get much out of it if you invest in today's markets!!

    Story
    "What the program had problems with, the app fixed"

    I felt that the narrator spoke too quickly, but the app fixed that with the option to change the speed of which the book is read. Overall a very basic yet deep introduction to the world of investing, as well as the differences that distinguishe investing from speculating.
