Cliched advice dressed as radicalism.
The author opens by confidently predicting the years following 2012 will be a "secular bear market". Not a good start.
There are IMO two different kinds of books about markets: those intended to to help you trade better, and those that bury you in analysis. This is the later. The author spends a long time bashing Mutual Funds and regaling you with "technology waves", "60 year cycles", "modern investment theory" and various other concepts that will be of very little use to you when you're sitting at your desk trying to decide what to do with your savings.
His criticism of efficient markets theory and "buy and hold" funds is valid, and introduced a few concepts I had not heard of before. But having spent most of the book doing this, he then unveils in the last coupe of chapters his grand solution ---------- (drum roll) ------------- buy "value stocks", and diversify.
After 10 chapters attacking conventional long-only equities funds, that was somewhat underwhelming. And if you want to learn value investing - I would suggest there are much better works on the subject out there than the very brief and inadequate treatment of it here.
Narrator is fine.

Interesting, but little concrete advise given
Is there anything you would change about this book?
More concrete advise could be given.
What was most disappointing about John F. Mauldin’s story?
This only seems to sell his newsletter(s).
Any additional comments?
I think the title is misleading. I was disappointed with the actual content.
Interesting and contemporary
Nice up to date book based on today's market environment. The first chapter pulled me in and the rest kept my interest till the end when he started talking about owning a business. Which is good for others, but not so much for me.
So yes, the book goes a little beyond stocks, but mostly its about the current situation in the stock market and gives a great historical perspective as well. Its short, covers all kinds of investing broadly and in an interesting way. I think the book is really good. Wouldn't have mind it being a couple of hours longer. I just have to re-listen to it before I start making decisions based on it.
