    waste of time

    Author should have named this "How i lived well in a down economy by writing a useless book."

    I can't remember the last time i encountered an audio book that i didn't care to finish. This is definitely one. I'm left wondering if the author's intent was a joke, or a scam. Which ever, it was obviously easy money for the author with very little effort.

    I expected the book to contain hard researched, little known, extremely useful facts. Instead, it was a regurgitation of 10% common knowledge, 10% bad information, and 80% filler.

    Everything smashed into one

    I thought I was listening to How to Write a Resume and How to Manage Your Finances in one. I don't know what I was expecting, but this was not it. If you are looking for a job, this may be hepful to you. But other than that, skip it.
