Immature and preachy

It was hard to listen to. Some parts are plain and boring with repetitive swearing, some parts are preachy and self-indulgent. Feels like a lot of editing effort was put in to make all of those pointless stories and preaching look like one body.

There are few ideas in this book, which are presented more like a layby product of author's revelation stream than something centric and deep. Among them are:
1. "don't try",
2. people's immortal projects cause problems so see point 1.
3. self-awareness onion for understanding your emotions and questioning your values
- what you feel,
- why you feel this way,
- how you choose to measure yourself?
4. your values are bad if they rely on something you can't control.

I don't have much knowledge about trading and investments and found this audiobook very practical. It provides a list of rules for selecting individual stocks and describes an approach to creating and maintaining a reasonably sized portfolio of stocks. It also demonstrates how a portfolio constructed by the proposed rules would perform in a historical perspective. I found the book easy to follow even without looking into accompanying materials, although the listener would benefit from doing so.

Does not work as an audio book

It might be a good book, but not in audio format. It has good accompanying materials, but without looking it is very hard to follow. Some other lecturers manage to describe calculations by explaining what goes into the formula and how its arguments impact the result, but here umpteen formulae are red as they are seen on paper. The reason I choose audiobooks over text versions is the ability to free my eyes and hands for other tasks.

This course does a great job in explaining how financial systems function and why we need them. It helps building good foundation for thinking critically about financial news and creates a bigger picture for making better financial decisions. The course is well structured, easy to follow in audio format and has great accompanying material. Really enjoyed it.

Not only ideas, but a great demo too

Listening to this audiobook was a thought provoking experience. I was wondering what was the process of creating this book? What it would take to make the book more engaging? Would it be worth doing so? Has the author achieved his goal by publishing this book? What is in this book for the audience? All in all, this book itself is a live demo of how making money online works. If you like learning by example, here it is. I personally think that this book empowers the reader for moving forward with whatever ideas he or she might have better than some motivational pitches.

There are no promotions of other products in this book and it indeed delivers a number of ideas promised in the title.

Despite the promise to develop your charisma in the title the content does not cover it.
