Publisher's Summary

"Once you have their money, never give it back." "Anything worth doing is worth doing for money." For centuries these and the other famous Ferengi "Rules of Acquisition" have been the guiding principles of the galaxy's most successful entrepreneurs. But the wisdom behind them was not won without a high cost in lives and latinum.


Now at last these inspiring tales of avaricious Ferengi wresting monetary gain from the jaws of poverty are available to the profit-hungry across the galaxy!

Legends were great - but only half the audiobook!

First and foremost, Shimmerman kills it as Quark, as always! Anyone who doesn't enjoy the stories and the explanations that surround them simply doesn't understand the Ferengi! They were perfect.

What frustrates me is that I thought I was paying for 3+ hours of Quark - but instead I received just shy of 2h of Quark, with about 90m of a TOS novella! The story was fine, and the Nimoy/Doohan team narration was great, but FALSE ADVERTISING!!!

I love ferengi's

This is one of the best Star Trek audio books out there. Also It's funny, yet true the Star Trek genre. This is an absolute must for all Star Trek fans.

I wish it was longer

This is a must have book. I'm not being given any latinum for this review so it will be short. As a Trekkie I enjoyed this audiobook a lot.

Left something to be desired

The narration was fantastic however I wasn’t too big of a fan of the book itself. However I did listen to it all the way through and as a DS9 fan I did catch myself enjoying the lore

A Must for all Trekkies

Any additional comments?

This is a very informative book on the wisdom of economics in a ruthless style. It is witty and very funny as the narrative is typical Ferengi greed at its best.

hmm not as good as i thought it would be

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

it would have been better if the reader, armin, could have not made many obvious atempts to sell/advertise his other books....very boring...at first thought it funny but it didnt take me long to think that Id had enough and find another more entertaining book.....

What do you think your next listen will be?

no idea

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Armin Shimerman?

no idea

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Star Trek, Deep Space Nine?

didnt get all that far into it to tell

Quark rules all!

I loved this audiobook. Hilarious & entertaining. Armin Shimerman as Quark is just wonderful. I loved hearing the stories behind the Rules of Aquisition.
