the ultimate investor

This book presents Buffet as he thinks and how he has made his decisions of success. If you think you know it all, don't read this book. If you are open to learning and creating a solid foundation of investing, please take the challenge. Do not expect a roller coaster ride of excitement. More so this read will present a feeling of getting your self out of bed in the morning, putting on your sneakers to run. At times, it can be challenging with financial concepts but DO NOT let this stop you. Just understand you have some more to learn. Buffet is currently the second richest man in the world; I guess he has done a "couple" things right in the past 50 years. It will be no skin off of Buffet's nose if you read this book or not.

Not as good as it looks like

I am not quite sure if this book is reviewed or approved by Warren Buffet. I don't believe the "way" described in the book is the "Way" Warren Buffet get rich. 30% a year investment return, is not good enough to make Warren a billionare. so , what make Warren a billionare, wah, the book did not tell you!

Great Book

If you are serious about investing and if you are disciplined, you would be doing yourself a great dis-service not to read/listen to this book. It is an excellent insight into Warren Buffet and his thought processes.

I will have to listen to this one many times to get everything out of it. I'd pay $100 for this title knowing what I know now.

It has received my "MUST READ" rating.

Timeless Wisdom

Great information everyone needs to control their own investments in the stock market. This book is a great opening into the mind of a genius. Not only will you learn how Buffet has done it, he'll teach you how too.

Pearls of wisdom in a sea of detail

This title provides significant historic detail and is not structured as a "How To" audio as the title suggests. The valuable pearls of wisdom are hidden in the detail.
I found this audio weakly structured and cumbersome.

incredible

It's a must read book for any investor. I would suggest do not start investing unless you read/listen this book and if possible "intelligent investor" by benjamin grahem

No get rich quick scam

This is a book you will want to listen to several times. What is there to learn comes in several layers. The narrator does a very good job. Both entertaining and insightful, this is well worth the money or the credits.

Not for me

You need to have more than average knowledge in order to like the book. This book isn't suited as a audiobook, to complicated to listen to in a car.
Didn't give me as much as Donald Trumps books.

Need to practice

Lots of good info, not really sure how to apply it without significant thought but then again I guess that's what they are trying to stress, look at the #'s rather then going with a whim :)

Reader was fine, the forumla stuff was hard to follow while driving but otherwise good book.

Boring...

This audio book is pretty boring. I think it must have informative material in it, but I'm having a hard time focusing on that material. Usually I just hear words without actually listening, in an attempt to finish the book. I probably won't finish it--it's gotten to be too much at 6 hours already.

I made a huge mistake in getting the unabridged version, maybe if I got abridged I would have had a markedly better experience. I thought I would get more bang for my buck with more listening time, but boy was I wrong, it's just not worth the dreariness. I think I will get all abridged audiobooks from now on because of this book. I can't have another experience like it.
