As incomes shrink and the cost of living continues to rise, more and more people are searching frantically for ways to build a stable financial future. But in the crowded and volatile world of today's financial marketplace, the sheer number of available investment options has even sophisticated investors scratching their heads.

On this audio, taken from his best-selling book, The Truth About Money, long-time financial planner and Wall Street guru Ric Edelman has created an accessible and practical approach to money management that cuts through all of the confusion and delivers an unbiased and lucid guide to selecting the right investment strategy.

Here Edelman focuses on such key topics as estate planning, tailoring investment strategies to suit income and needs, and choosing a financial advisor. He takes the guesswork out of financial planning and provides the novice and the experienced investor alike with the tips, tools, and insights they need to make their hard-earned money work for them.

Received only 4 out of 13 chapters from Audible.

Outstanding content, I did read the book however the download from Audible was only for 4 chapters. Beware! Maybe they fixed it. but, seriously, regarding the content and information, with regard to every single aspect of money, he leaves no stone unturned. I have increased my financial knowledge by 1000%! Seriously! And I assure you, I am no dummy. :-)

Overall good, but didnt realize that its abridged

If you list to Ric's radio show, then you know what to expect as he reads the book. The content was good, and well delivered. My only complaint is that it is an abridged version. If I had known that, I would probably would have got the kindle version instead. But- that's my own fault.

I just wish it was available unabridged

If you could sum up The Truth About Money in three words, what would they be?

Interesting, informative, motivating

Who was your favorite character and why?

N/A

Have you listened to any of Ric Edelman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No.

What did you learn from The Truth About Money that you would use in your daily life?

Additional info about financial planning.

Any additional comments?

The length of the recording vs the size of the book concerns me. I thought it would only be abridged because of charts and graphs. When he said go to his book for more info it made me mad. I bought the book in audible form but now you ALSO want me to buy it on paper. How about a web site to see the missing info. I may finally try to use the return policy. This is one probably better left to paper. Sorry.

Good info. Only half info needed.

Seemed a ploy to o and buy the paper copy rather than giving a listener what they need.

A great start to improved finances

Tons of info in a condensed setting. The reader is enthusiastic which makes for better listening.

Not much truth about money

Might be okay for the novice but redundant did the intermediate. Too much time spent on estate planning.
