Brilliant BUT for USA Peoples

Great narrator. He is connected to what he is reading and has a calm voice.

This is a brilliant book but specific for the USA - their tax, income and retirement (super), insurance, health cover, wills (everything USA really) laws and things important to know if you live there.

I don't feel Australians will benefit unless you are looking for an overview or a starting point and then buy a book specific to Australia for each topic covered.

For someone about to move to USA or already living there this is an absolutely brilliant beginners guide and great fro kids about to venture into the world on their own.

Great content, poor reader

Unfortunately the reader of this book was very poor and would put anybody to sleep. However the content of the book is fantastic. Unfortunately I think the great content is lost in the readers sleepy type tone as well as it seemed at times he himself was falling asleep and also was struggling to read even the words. I would not recommend this book given the reader and would probably choose a different audio version with a better reader.

Cannot get past the narration

The narrators voice nearly puts himself to sleep. Perhaps the content is alright, but this desperately needs to be re-recorded.

Wonderful book.

I have read several personal finance books and I have to say this is one of the best !

I think if you want to read a personal finance book this should be your first and possibly your last and all you need to read book about personal finance.

Increase the speed to x1.4

The narrator speaks really slowly and might put you to sleep while listening. I recommend to increase the speed to x1.4 if you already bought this title or really need it.
