Although dry and brain-power-intense at times; huge numbers of statistics in small spaces of time, it was an excellent balance of factual information and case studies, narrated wonderfully.

highly recommend as an introduction to accumulating wealth, but I really would appreciate an up to date version to reflect current realities.

I was really drawn into this book. I was shocked, amazed, brought to feelings of despair and horror of white history; but equally in awe and intrigued by the amazing insight into aboriginal agriculture and care of the Australian lands.

Thank you for your contribution to Australian history and literature. I will be sharing this book far and wide!

lastly; Thank you to the original custodians of this land, for the clever and loving care of it, for so many thousands of years. I hope we as a nation can acknowledge the whole history of this nation, and move forward with many of the advances in land care that the Aboriginal people practiced prior to European invasion. may we have a prosperous future, if only we stop measuring success by means of concur, and so-called economic growth (destruction and degradation of our lands finite resources).

Excellent!

Great overview ; told in a wonderful story telling format.
It really felt like I was personally being told stories throughout the ages.

Humorous, simple, & serious

Our third time listening! Excellent story telling, but serious about the tough stuff. Add in practical real life applications and you've got a relatively easy to implement blueprint for financial security.

I couldn't stop listening..

Wow. The history, the brutality, the grief, and the stark resemblance and differences to living as a woman now.

I can see how & why women remain at the mercy of men.

History; HIS story. it's refreshing (and sad) to listen to HER story.

lots of relatable and usable info. I've already started sharing the concepts with colleagues, and recommending the book title to everyone that will listen.

I'm looking forward to listening again, to fill in some gaps and get a greater grasp and understanding.

I've also bought the hard copy book, and I'm glad to know that extra resources are available online, to help implement the strategies defined within.

Highly recommend.

Lots of examples, specific situatuons and plans to cope, that I could (unfortunately/fortunately) relate to. I found this really helped me to apply the plans to my situation.

Game changing; Engaging stories backed by research

I'm very much a story person, so really I appreciated, and resonated with the many real life examples that Brené shared.

I'm very sad that the book ended- I finished it in a day! this was probbaly very surprising for me as I'm not a reader- I have little time with 3 kids, homeschooling, and studying a masters degree... So one might imagine that doesn't give me much free time left to sit and read, but a great, captivating audio recording means that I was able to listen while preparing meals & while driving instead of listening to the radio.

The intermittent background music detracts from the book and is highly distracting, annoying, and makes it harder to get into, or stay engaged.

Please record it again, without music.
