As incomes shrink and the cost of living continues to rise, more and more people are searching frantically for ways to build a stable financial future. But in the crowded and volatile world of today's financial marketplace, the sheer number of available investment options has even sophisticated investors scratching their heads.

On this audio, taken from his best-selling book, The Truth About Money, long-time financial planner and Wall Street guru Ric Edelman has created an accessible and practical approach to money management that cuts through all of the confusion and delivers an unbiased and lucid guide to selecting the right investment strategy.

Here Edelman focuses on such key topics as estate planning, tailoring investment strategies to suit income and needs, and choosing a financial advisor. He takes the guesswork out of financial planning and provides the novice and the experienced investor alike with the tips, tools, and insights they need to make their hard-earned money work for them.

I just wish it was available unabridged

If you could sum up The Truth About Money in three words, what would they be?

Interesting, informative, motivating

Who was your favorite character and why?

N/A

Have you listened to any of Ric Edelman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No.

What did you learn from The Truth About Money that you would use in your daily life?

Additional info about financial planning.

Any additional comments?

The length of the recording vs the size of the book concerns me. I thought it would only be abridged because of charts and graphs. When he said go to his book for more info it made me mad. I bought the book in audible form but now you ALSO want me to buy it on paper. How about a web site to see the missing info. I may finally try to use the return policy. This is one probably better left to paper. Sorry.

Not much truth about money

Might be okay for the novice but redundant did the intermediate. Too much time spent on estate planning.

Fantastic and quick read on finance & investing

This is a short book about money and finance, from saving, to investing tips, to managing your assets when you die. It's narrated in a tone that's not boring or full of financial jargon (and it's surprisingly self-narrated). It's a finance book that isn't trying to sell you something, and one I now highly recommend to others.
