All round good summary

Thoroughly enjoyed this summary book. It was well paced, informative and picked out what felt like key highlights of the original work. The original was referenced throughout and so it is easy to follow up on a specific chapter or theme.

The narrator is very clear and understandable with a good cadence.

Overall I really enjoyed the summary and will definitely be purchasing a copy of the original.

I enjoyed listening to this audiobook.!!

Wow great summary! I didn’t have time to read the original so I thought I’d try a summary audio book. Wasn’t sure what to expect but this one really was well spoken and got straight to the point. I think I’m going buy the original because this was such an interesting story of Jim Simons.

Excellent summary!!

This was fantastic ! I was surprised at how well this was spoken.Very interesting audio book about a somehow little known quantitative investor and fund. They were pioneers in the quantitative revolution yet often are not credited as such. A good listen for anyone interested in investing.

AWESOME!!!

Fascinating story about a true genius who worked for decades to figure out a system to beat the markets. Well research and also supported by an interesting narrative about Simons and the individuals who helped build the firm. If you like the financial markets, you'll be engaged by this story and the characters who played a part in it.
