What disappointed you about The God Delusion?

It's not an easy topic to focus on, the sound of Prof Dawkins voice becomes very irritating quite early on.

Has The God Delusion put you off other books in this genre?

yes

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Richard Dawkins and Lalla Ward ?

anyone with some energy

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The God Delusion?

not sure, managed about 3 hours before it all blended into one monotone lullaby.. had to turn it off as I was driving at the time and needed to stay awake. Could not face turning it back on a second time

Any additional comments?

not one i would recommend

Is this a bad comedy, written by a fantasist?

Would you try another book written by Neil Strauss or narrated by Neil Strauss?

No, this book was one of the worst I have ever heard

What could Neil Strauss have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

he could have written something that was not pure fantasy

How did the narrator detract from the book?

voice is annoying and seems like the narrator is trying to hard

What character would you cut from The Game?

all of them

Any additional comments?

this book is just awful, written by a geek who thinks he is the king of pickup artists living in a squalid mansion in the hollywood hills.. although I suspect the reality is more "living in his mothers basement looking for internet porn"

Millionaire MBA Business Mentoring Programme, Week 2 cover art

great course but horrible soundtrack

This is a very interesting piece of work and the content is excellent.. the only thing that lets this down is the very irritating 80's keyboard sounding music between modules.. I always have to turn it down as it seems to go on forever. What were you thinking of Mr Parkes Cordock????? Excellent work but would have got another 2 stars on the rating if it was not for the terrible music edited into the programme.

This is very good and will give you some great tips. I think that this is probably aimed at those with at least a basic knowledge of shares and investments but even if you don't then I am sure that you will still enjoy this.

interesting take on things

Very interesting take on things here, there is lots to work with. Some of the advice is not going to be easy to take, for example it has a bias towards being a sales person of financial products or being an owner of your own business. Of course there is some great advice for you if you are not in these categories but to get the most from this book you will be in one of those.

Strange language is used in many different parts of this book and it is clearly written in another generation. This adds to the charm. The voice of the narrator is strangely soothing and easy to listen too, I enjoyed this immensely.

This is a good book but I have enjoyed others in the same sector far more. I would recommend it but there are others that I would read first.

Perfect beginners guide to shares

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 28-08-10

This gives you all of the basics you need to get going and there are some interesting hints and tips in there too. I enjoyed this but there is that stuffy old man inside of me that thinks talking about toast in a finance book damages credibility... It doesn't, it's just me being a grumpy old man!
I have recommended this to many of my friends and colleagues who are interested in getting into the world of shares.

This is excellent, there are many mistakes that I have made over the last few years and they could all have been avoided by taking this book into consideration. I don't worry so much about my portfolio now and check the value only twice a month, rather than every morning. I hate to think how much money I have wasted on unnecessary brokers fees and stamp duty. If you have any interest in shares you must read this book.
