This abridgement is too much

Looking at the actual book (on amazon.com "look inside" feature) and reading the reviews there shows an essentially different book, much larger, deeper in content and wider-ranging. What I heard here was only a small fraction of that book. I wonder, what is the motivation to do this?

Hedgehogging has a intriguing title, but does not deliver either as an educational book about hedge funds, or as a series of anecdotes. It consists of some disjointed stories of hedge investing, but does not take the time to explain the terms or theory behind these investments. While there are some nuggets of useful investment advice, the tone of the narrator makes it sound as if the author's main goal was to impress the reader with his intelligence, not to educate or entertain. This narration style may be true to the author, but it made me feel like I was trapped at dinner with with an annoying self-important host.

doesn't work on audio

the abridged version is aweful. early on in the audio it feels as if the stories are cut short, then later on the audio book contradicts itself within 5 minutes (growth v value section) I can only assume there is more information within the source text, and the person responsible for abridging it simply didn't understand the content.
