A wealth of information!

I am glad I also purchased the book so that I can read it more slowly. Mr. Tobias covers a lot ground and unless you are taking notes, there's much that can be missed just by listening.

Outdated

While an interesting read if you’re not already frugal, this book has too many references to websites and is outdated. Not an actual investing guide.

NOT the only investment guide you'll ever need

Way too stocks & bonds oriented, not enough investments of anything else.
Literally 5 min of real estate, and no real life applications... unless, if your focus is only stocks

Quite technical, buy the book instead

There is a lot of detailed information which is impossible to capture all by listening. Better to buy the book so it's easier to revisit the serious you are the most interested in. I liked Rich Dad Poor Dad more and that book is more appropriate for audio listening.

Updated Edition Well Worth Buying--Great Advice

I have owned prior editions, so when I saw Andrew Tobias had an updated edition out I had to get it.
I am very glad I did, and I bet you will be too.
Much practical and timely advice.
Includes quite a bit that is new or updated.
Tobias has a great sense of humor.
