Not one of the Best Tracy Audiobooks

I have many of his audiobooks but this one was difficult to focus on. I'm sure this same information is available in his better collections.

I don’t agree with all his opinions but certainly I do with most of them

One of the things he was wrong at is that about online shopping. He said that in his mind, online shopping would never be successful. In my opinion he failed on predicting the market, which is one on the things he strongly suggests. Great book otherwise.
