Ready for updating

The book is thorough but doesn't translate well to audiobook format. The reading of URLs is troublesome and not very useful. Still, the narrator's voice is appropriate for the subject and presents the authors words authentically.

Not appropriate outside of America

I found that 90% of the content applies only to financial things that are only applicable to USA. This makes it mostly irrelevant to people living elsewhere as I do in South Africa. I did appreciate some of the advice provided (not financial) in the closing stages of the book.
