Should have hired a pro to read...

Some interesting ideas backed up with some research by the Author. However, she spends most of her time on personal experiences and observing the stories of others. The content was alright, but her reading is probably the worst I've heard to date (very robotic). The audio book could have greatly benefited from a professional reader.

I have been looking for a concise summary of economic/financial history for some time. This did a terrific job of giving just enough time and attention on each of the major economic developments of the past several centuries, while still maintaining a brisk enough pace to tackle over a month's worth of commuting to work. As many of the reviews mentioned, the editing (or lack thereof) leaves much to be desired. However, the content was so rich it was forgivable. Overall, a solid purchase.

Such a great intro to the topic. I've listened through it multiple times now. Great reference material when trying to make sense of the news.

Great advice. To the point and enjoyable. More than worth the price tag and is good for many relistens.

I really like Jason Kelly's writing style. I think he does a good job of explaining financial terms in an understandable way. Very interesting listen; learned a lot about how private equity functions.

I've read through the $100 Startup before this one. Not a lot of new info here. More of the same kind of advice. As someone who has run their own business, I really don't think he properly explains just how hard it is to run a successful business... but that would not sell as many books I guess.

Unbalanced and too rosy

I don't think it presents a balanced view on the subject. They only address a couple problems with the technology briefly near the end, but quickly explain it away. I think the book could have also benefited from more input from industry insiders with technical expertise to explain how blockchain should and should not be implemented.
