I could listen to his dulcet tones all day.

Just a really good intro into all the things we should all know about: our money, financial planners, the banks, basic terms and trends.

He covers a lot of bases and I'm a massive fan. Cheers Alan

Great book and summary

Only wish I’d been able to read this years ago. Excellent narration by Alan Kohler. Disagree with the blockchain trend at the end, AI completely will change our world and the war markets and businesses perform but blockchain still is a product looking for a problem.

real time help

I think that Alan has provided some great information to assist with retirement. The pace was good and the information is very current. I really enjoyed it and have recommended it to two other friends.

Foundational read on personal finance

Highly specific to Australia, but I would say Australians should read this first before the traditional personal finance books (The Wealthy Barber, even perhaps The Intelligent Investor).

Very Informative Book.

I learnt a bit of history within the banking industry, as well as good information for the future.
Thank you.
