disappointing little depth here.
disappointing this book would be okay total beginners. but for those looking to formulate a serious strategy will need to look elsewhere. The lengthy tiresome metaphors pad out the little content. Like many audio books this fails to go into the depth necessary to really master the subject. moderately entertaining but no real content here.

Don't be put off by the chessy title. It's great.
I read this after finishing three mediocre/bad trading books in a row, and this was a real breath of fresh air. Timeless wisdom, common sense, and practical, no-nonsense advice from a grizzled Wall Street veteran.Even if you're not adopting the main strategy covered in this book (going long equities for several years), this still has a lot of excellent material about basic strategy and good practice that will be relevant to all traders.
Narrator is fine.

This is the ABRIDGED version...
What did you love best about How to Make Money in Stocks?
I happen to have a text version of this book but I wanted to listen to it. At only 4 hours, I was dubious that this was really the unabridged version of this 450 page book. Also, the book has hundreds of stock charts and tables that don't appear to be mentioned in the audio book. Beware, this is NOT an unabridged version. First, pages 1-109 are nothing but stock charts, Pages 112-152 is a section on how to read stock charts. Then what the audio book calls chapter 1, really is starting almost half way through the text book in chapter 3. Granted, you cannot put all of this information in an audio book, and I suspect the audio book has a different version number so they can say he is reading the whole book, but just be aware that you are really just getting an extremely ABRIDGED version of the real text version of the book. Even in chapters 3+, they are leaving out sections of information. Buy both if you must, I think it is worth it. Also, you should subscribe to the Investors Business Daily paper (really cheap) which will screen all these stocks for you, otherwise this book isn't that helpful. IBD also has a video tutorial that captures about 75% of the CANSLIM methodology he covers in this book, if you don't even want to waste 4 hours.
What about Chris Ryan’s performance did you like?
People give him a hard time but he's just your typical narrator. Don't not buy the book because of him. Listen to it at 2x if he's too slow.

William J Oneil has got it down!I have bought several other stock market audio books from audible and Oneil is the one that really knows his stuff.Get ready to subscribe to IBD you need it to effectively benefit from this book. I would buy it again if I didnt have it! Also Phil Town and Cramers real money were beneficial. William J Oneil is the best!!!!!!
