Great overview on how to start investing

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It gave a very clear overview on pros and cons of investing and how to assemble a portfolio. Gave me the confidence to skip the marketing from the fund options and go straight to index funds.

Any additional comments?

Only thing I missed a bit was on how to select a suitable investment platform and how to invest in items outside of shares / indexes (eg gold). Other then that great starting guide!
