The content of the book is good and the messages being delivered behind the content is very important. But quite frankly, to hear the constant delivery of quotations of various people ('blah blah blah.' Charlie Munger. US Business School. 1998.) gets pretty tiresome after a couple of chapters. Also, I wasn't too keen on the delivery - very dry and almost robotic - which exacerbates my dislike of the constant quotes. Just because a book is about business and investing, doesn't mean it can't be delivered without any enthusiasm! In my opinion, one might be better off reading this in book format.

What made the experience of listening to Charlie Munger the most enjoyable?
The story itself is great, informative and insightful.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Charlie Munger?
Detailing how Munger draws from other disciplines to help shape strategies. I'm a sucker for a good analogy.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
The biggest downside was the constant footnote references for the quotes. "Charlie Munger, Westco Annual Meeting, 1994", ... that broke up the pace of the story and ideas.
Any additional comments?
Cut out the footnote references in the performance. Add a PDF for the Berskshire math section.

Interesting book ruined by the constant references to the date and place of every single quote. We KNOW all the quotes are by Munger and whether it was in the Berkshire annual report or at a Harvard lecture is completely irrelevant. It just spoils the flow of the story. What a pity.
