I have to agree with the 2 reviewers. It doesn't deserve not even one star. The book is very shallow and the author makes unfunny silly jokes. I really wanted this book to be over.

This was my first book on Audible.co.uk. I found it interesting, funny, witty and very enjoyable. I believe through this reading/listen, I learned to love self narrated biographies. Sir Richard gives us a very compelling personal look at his life. Well worth one credit. I ended becoming a fan of audible books.

I am a fan of Suze's TV show and I believe that here, she equips women with the financial knowledge to make better decisions on the day-to-day life. The reading is very engaging. Great life lessons and insights on how to manage your financial life in a more intelligent way.

Blair takes you to the centre of the action where decisions have to be made everyday. One of the most engaging political autobiographies I've read. It's very direct, sometimes funny and witty. A must read.

I loved this book. The narration is really good and the story is written in such a way that it was an eye opening to the economics of the world. I will listen to this one again due to so many concepts introduced to me and different ways of looking to the world of Economic. Enlightening book. Looking forward to read other books from this author.

I like Paulo Coelho a lot, but didn't like the reader of this book. Very think and pompous accent. He gave a sense of distance from the character. Perhaps if it would have been a woman... The story is very interesting from the main characters point of view about sex, sexuality and prostitution.
