Very outdated for current climate

Most of the info in this is good, but so much has changed since 2015/2016, I would be hard pressed to recommend this audiobook.

Not the best in the audio format

Solid enough book with solid enough info. Quite tedious to listen to, evidently that’s a thing now. This audiobook spends more time telling you what sections to reference to find out more, and what information is going to be covered in the following chapters, than it does actually giving us some tangible and implementable information. Props to the author for providing a PDF to follow along with, though this makes listening to ‘for further reading on XYZ topic, see chapter ABC’ at the end of every paragraph even less necessary than with no accompanying text. I’m a bit of a slow reader and I know very little about stocks, but I listened at 1.4x speed and even that was at times painstakingly slow. Don’t regret reading, just regret not asking more ppl for a reference to a useful stocks book

Outdated material

Outdated material and personal ideas instead of information. Jumps around and refers to chapters that haven’t been read yet or to go back to certain sections. Do not recommend. Does not take you to the moon.

Excellent book packed with lots of useful information. However, I am still not sure what “ETF” stands for.

Awesome Book

No matter how much experience you have in trading, this book will enhance your knowledge. It is an excellent review of the basics and provides wise insight. This books gives every listener a little bit of everything. I recommend skipping to sections that you desire to review rather than listening to the entire book straight through for those who are more advanced with trading.

This is the book to read when starting to invest

Although it obviously lacks depth on certain topics, it provides just the depth you need to understand how to invest and what lies ahead for every new investor.

Excellent and Informative

I feel like I was able to learn and retain a lot of the key information presented in this book. The information was super helpful for someone just learning and the presentation was professional but amusing, not a stuffy textbook vibe. I fully recommend this title if you are interested in learning about stock investing and basics of investing in general.
