What did you like best about Advanced Investments? What did you like least?
The course content was excellent. However, because there's a lot of math/statistics involved, listening to equations being spoken leaves you missing out. I'm a long-time Teaching Company (aka The Great Courses) customer and I wish I had purchase this item directly from them in the video format. Although I was excited to see it on Audible (where it is also cheaper), it was just too hard to follow without actually seeing anything.

Would you try another book from The Great Courses and/or Professor Steve L. Slezak, PhD?
This is a great course with a lot of great information and that is the problem. Without the documentation, that Audible does not provide, this is a very very hard course to follow by just listening.
Would you be willing to try another one of Professor Steve L. Slezak, PhD’s performances?
Yes once you starting providing the documentation/text he would be using with the course.

The deeper end of financial theory. This particular course bears the word 'Advanced' in its title for a reason. You really need to print out the pdf file and work through it while you are listening to the lectures. A demanding course, that requires your full attention, but whose completion will give you a good overview of the financial theory and practice that underlies much of modern investment practice.
I have a keen but amateur interest in investments and the stock market. This audiobook was so dull I couldn't finish it unfortunately.
I've listened and read a lot of audiobooks and normal books on the subject and this is the only one that I found 'boring' - I appreciate it's a dry subject but it's one that many others have got far more out of.
