I've been looking at starting to invest and I found this book a good starting point, it has a decent amount of things to teach.
This book is aimed more at the American listener with some of the terms used but still very valuable.
I will definitely listen again and will buy the hard copy as a reference guide
Again I would give the hardcover book five stars but the Audible format 3. Not that the Audible format isn't well done and the narration is excellent. It's just that you need the book too. If I were to buy again I would buy the abridged version and the hardcover.
Anyway, I found myself up 'till 5:00am with my MP3 player, the book, and my laptop browsing msn.money.com and the website given in the book. It was a bit of an overload but enjoyable information. I'll start paper trading in a few days and see how I do. It's an exciting prospect.

5 Stars for the content; 1 Star for Audible.
Great stuff! I'm excited about becoming a Rule#1 investor and have ordered the book. So I recommend you consider learning these skills and practicing this approach to investing.
Unfortunately - for me at least - there are too many critical references to calculations, tables and lists of numerical data that make Rule #1 entirely inappropriate for an audio book. I might feel otherwise if the author and Audible were to make this key information available in downloadable PDF format (the way that "On Intelligence" by Jeff Hawkins does on this website). Imagine someone reading the financial tables of a newspaper to you while you try to draw a chart of it in your mind and you'll understand what I mean.
That said, the segments that are less focused on numerical calculations and analysis offer some great learning value in the form of an audio stream.
I can't wait to get my hands on the book!
- Hope this helps!
