The author put together self-promoting material with very little content, the points are shallow with a couple of feel good stories but they are ultimately hollow without much content. It was not worth the hour spent listening to it.

Reborn in body and spirit beneath Mount Deathfire, the primarch Vulkan gathers his most trusted sons and prepares for the final part of his journey. The Legions shattered at Isstvan V have stalled the Warmaster’s advance across the galaxy, but fresh cracks are spreading through the alliance between the Iron Hands, Salamanders and Raven Guard, along with mysterious rumours of the return of Ferrus Manus. Haunted by a sense of destiny unfulfilled, Vulkan must choose between joining their war of vengeance against the traitors and following his own barely understood path all the way to the Throneworld itself.

This is the only money guide you'll ever need. That's a bold claim, given there are already thousands of finance books on the shelves. So what makes this one different? You'll get a step-by-step formula: open this account, then do this; call this person, and say this; invest money here and not there. All with a glass of wine in your hand.

This Finance book is delivered in a clear and transparent manner, it references simple terms aimed at helping struggling Australian’s get on top of their finances. The fundamentals are solid for all, but for those in higher earning stages of life and wealth development, the investment and growth sections are much lighter than expected. Be prepared to be spoon fed a lot of this information but Scott’s lively, Steve Erwin-esque, larrikin style of delivery is entertaining.

You will get to know Scott’s political views which was not required and the presentation of some topics I found slightly patronising. However, that aside it’s a great book, well-crafted, energetically performed and hits the target audience with the hard truths needed. The basics presented here are the cornerstone to achieving your financial freedom with minimal effort.

The greatest investment advisor of the 20th century, Benjamin Graham taught and inspired people worldwide. Graham's philosophy of "value investing" - which shields investors from substantial error and teaches them to develop long-term strategies - has made The Intelligent Investor the stock market Bible ever since its original publication in 1949.

The time has come for Leman Russ, primarch of the Space Wolves, to fulfil his vow and attempt to stop Warmaster Horus before he breaks through to the Segmentum Solar. In the face of opposition from three of his brother primarchs, Russ withdraws the Space Wolves legion from Terra and makes all haste for Horus’ position. Reports from Malcador the Sigillite’s agents suggest that Horus is utterly changed and infused with a diabolical power so great that no man can stand against him.

Outstanding story, this book adds a depth to the vlka fenryka unlike any prior stories about the legion. It's worth noting that there is a lot of assumed knowledge as this story is part of the larger Horus Heresy saga and is set in later stages of the holistic storyline.

I got a lot out of this and would recommend it to others wanting to gain an insight into the worlds most successful investor. Well narrated and good flow as it outlines Buffett's career and presents examples of his investment techniques and methods. The book details the key decisions and goes into how he chooses the companies Berkshire Hathaway invests in. My only criticism is some of the formulas presented would be better seen on paper rather than read aloud in an Audiobook.
