Audible Editor Reviews

In Old Money, Nelson Aldrich presents an insider's account of what it means to be born into one of America's wealthiest families. His account of his family's history shows the good, bad, and the ugly of being in society's upper crust. Robin Bloodworth gives a strong performance with his easy pacing and blue-blood diction. He heightens the audiobook's elegant and thoughtful tone. Overall, Aldrich's story is absolutely fascinating and important for anyone who has thought about what it means to be rich in America.

Publisher's Summary

    Story
    "Once you here the forward, it's a total downer"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I couldn't get past the negativity of the forward. I started listening to all this bragging about who he was and where his family was from and I just went "Ugh!" I really haven't gotten to listen to the point of the story yet because I was so annoyed by the forward of the book


    What was most disappointing about Nelson Aldrich’s story?

    I was looking for books on the habits of old money, not bragging of old money.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Refund me my listening credits, it was a total waste of my goals.
