Don't buy this

I understand it is a just a review. But it is a waste of your money. Buy the real book.

If you're sitting on the fence start here

This puts Gary's book into an easy to understand nutshell. I couldn't get my busy CPA wife to listen to the full book so she remained a skeptic until I found this.

To the point

I enjoyed listening to this. I wish now I would've spent the extra for the whole book, it was very short and left me wanting more details regarding the points brought out. But for a quick down and dirty, it does the job.
