Great book..!!

This book is a great stepping stone. I'm in my early 20's so I am no stranger to a lot of the information presented but I recommend starting your listening here anyways. It helps to slow yourself down and establish a solid foundation for more in-depth listening.

Great for beginners, indeed

As a beginner in personal finance and investing, I found this audiobook very insightful. From the audiobook, I got to know what capitalism is about, the history of some well-known American companies, as well as the differences among ways of investments.

Simple to understand, excellent for beginners

For beginners, it is important to understand and research the companies. Pick the good ones and stick with them by having a lot of patience and discipline to resist the fluctuations in the free market.

BEST AUDIOAUDIOBOOK

About why companies grow, how one can earn from their growth, historical trends affecting growth, and the actions of these on financial markets. One can go through an entire major in economics and not know much about financial markets, their contribution to business, and how people make them work. This audiobook is a great overview of this process.

Outstanding!

I studied economics in college, and thought this audiobook was as good of a general economics audiobook as any I've listen. It's unlike the very few investing audiobooks I've ever listen--the title is more descriptive, it is a learn to earn audiobook.

For the beginning investor, this is the best audio

I had no idea how to invest, pick good stocks, what all of the technical stuff was about, could not ever listen an annual report, I was clueless. After my broker reccommended this audiobook to me, I was a believer. I understood every concept in the audiobook, and was entertained while listening it.

This is a great beginner's guide to investing.

This is a great beginner's guide to investing. The audiobook begins with a History of Capitalism which is extremely interesting -- even to those who fell asleep in history class. The history of our country's economy puts investing into context.
