Content is fine, adaption to audio is terrible

The content is like a long form blog post series. The narration is clear, but the adaption from print to audiobook format is the worst I've ever heard. Prepare to listen to a lot of web addresses spelled out letter by letter and citations detailed to the page number.

A most for new investors

A most for new investors or those wanting to get the most from their retirement plan. Unfortunately, the performance of the reader is extremely monotonous. The content have to many “numbers” that could be overwhelming for newbies.

The Last Financial Book

This is the last financial book I will read. I've read Bogle and Bernstein and Buffett and I've been leaning toward this strategy for many years. I've been deceiving myself that my portfolio of sector etfs and sector index funds was good enough. Last week I sold everything and this week I am buying into this strategy and I will be set for life. Not only will I be saving money on fees, but I will also be saving money on investment books.

Simple

it's a simple book that describes a well rounded strategy for Equity investing.
while I like this strategy and the construct of the book there is a lot of redundancy and quotes from investors that do not add value to the book in my opinion and got boring in certain points
