holistic


I am taking this audiobook because I have never had a financial course, and now that I am older, I really see the need for it. I know that financial literacy isn't just about numbers and budgeting. It is also about beliefs and attitudes of the past that I would like to work on. This is a "holistic" course. I like that this course covers a list of 140 most common financial acronyms and abbreviations. It is good so far! I recommend this course.

Wonderful book, extremely important read!

If you have ever wondered how money actually works, its history, development, and use - this is the title for you. Well organized with concepts -- even the not-so-intuitive ones -- explained in terms that make sense. Expertly narrated.

Do the right things

I highly recommend this course. It will change your perspective on finances and success and it will make you do the right things to get where you need to be. Now my opinion changed on retirement, on financial success in general, on saving and spending and now I actually know that I can retire with a very good financial position. It is amazing. I had no clue that I could retire with that much money. This course is a must do.

Changed my life

This course changed my life! I am almost done paying off my debt, which I thought I will go bankrupt before taking this course, but now I am almost debt free and was able to increase my income. Also, the instructor was very helpful with direct questions. Definitely recommend.

Something that is always needed.

Great book to introduce you to the key concepts of finance acronyms and abbreviations, as they apply to every person in a company. If you're working in finance, you likely already know this information, but if you're in any other department, it is the perfect book. Easy to read, easy to understand, and I have been able to apply the ideas right away. I wish this was the introductory text in MBA programs - great place to start, as finance is, more than anything, a language. I am in sales and found the ideas a great reminder of how to position the financial value of by products. I encourage anyone who wants to get ahead in their job to listen this, and then think about your company and how to apply the ideas. In this day and age, Financial Acronyms is critical to getting ahead!

Just what I wanted!

Easy and great read for aspiring Investment Bankers, and even those who are just interested in learning about more about the financial industry, specifically IB. Very straightforward and easy to comprehend before moving to more advanced stuff.
