    Good little book of market musings.

    This is an enjoyable and interesting collection of short articles on the markets written by various successful traders with a wide variety of styles and outlooks. It's nearly 20 years old and inevitably some topics have dated, but there is more than enough that is timeless and universal to make it worth your time.

    I liked the narrator too. Clear, and easy to listen to.

    excellent book

    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.

    Excellent book

    Whether you're interested in Fundamental or Technical trading, this book has snippets of wisdom for everyone. It won't tell you a particular stock to buy, but it will help you understand a variety of aspect of the market and help you define your philosophy of trading. Both the introductions and the readings themselves are enlightening. Very enjoyable listening!

    A solid choice

    This book is both interesting and useful. It offers exposure to a wide variety of investing related topics. I believe most individual investors will find something useful in this book. If you are looking at some different investing books I recommend this one and Peter Lynch's "One Up on Wall Street". I recommend these two above "Forbes: Greatest Investing Stories" and "Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits (Philip Fisher).

    Different perspectives

    Very interesting overview of different investment perspectives ranging from the pure horse sense approach to the almost esoteric analysis explained by the practitioners themselves. Excellent narration captures each individual style.

    Very Helpful Great narration!

    Where does The Book of Investing Wisdom rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have owned this audiobook for a few years now. It was the first audiobook I purchased from amazon. I enjoyed the collective wisdom from the all star cast whose methods range from commodities,trading options ,shorting stocks and the Elliot wave theory method. Like the masters buffet and lynch I also enjoyed the lesser known authors and their methodologies. The collective cast of names along with their wisdom there is sure to be some benefit no matter what your investing strategy. A good listen and very well narrated!

    Cherry Picked the Worst Advice from the Greats

    Having been an avid student of Warren Buffett (and his business partner Charlie Munger) and Peter Lynch's work, I have to disagree with what is considered 'wisdom' that Peter Krass cherry picked. The book is well written and the stories are enjoyable, but the ideas that he has narrowly cherry picked are self serving and frankly is dangerously advice.

    "People are trying to be smart - all I am trying to do is not to be idiotic, but it's harder than most people think." - Charlie Munger. Peter Kass is trying very hard to be smart and 'wise'.

    Dated but still contains lots of "Wisdom"

    A collection of essays by famous and successful investors, this book is a cursory but nonetheless interesting look into the thought processes and investing philosophies of Wall Street Legends.

    Some essays are stronger than others (I wouldn't recommend using hem line lengths as a barometer of market health), and a few concern topics that may be of less interest to the average investor (though the principles of trading commodity futures are widely applicable).

    I'd recommend this book as a supplement to any investor's library shelf, but the scattershot nature of the format prevent it from being anything more. For beginning investors and those seeking to expand their financial intelligence it should also be a great jumping off point to read more of the various authors in depth.

    Old School Investing

    Old school stories of investing. May want to stick with something more relevant. Still a good foundation of wisdom.

    A decent collection of stories

    It's a collection of fairly interesting stories from some of our times most successful investors. If you are unfamiliar with them this book could work as a way to choose which style you like the most and then I suggest you to continue with books about or written by that investor/investors.

    With a collection like this it's hard to get a good and consistent story with clear points, but it's also clearly stated it's a collection of different investors stories.
