Would you try another book from Thomas H. Davenport and Jinho Kim and/or Alan Sklar?
What was most disappointing about Thomas H. Davenport and Jinho Kim ’s story?
Lacked substance for anyone above high school or sophomore in college
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Alan Sklar?
Since book is for a younger audience, perhaps a younger narrator.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The book spoke of the value of quantitative analysis and hit its mark there most of the time, but not really in any way that isn't already known. It should have practiced with examples what it actually preaches in the book: make quantitative analysis assessable to the non-quants, in the language of non-quants. While it spoke in the language of non-quants, it didn't quite transfer any specific knowledge.
I will however seek other books to help me attain what the title of this book promised. And that is why I must give this book two stars. I spared it a one star because it does an admiral job being a cheerleader for quantitative analysis; that, and learning about a certain hedge fund manager.
Any additional comments?
this book had too much filler; it could have been written seemingly in half the pages

What made the experience of listening to Keeping Up with the Quants the most enjoyable?
being able to test the things I learnt with the Quants I work with
What three words best describe Alan Sklar’s voice?
Deep voice. Can be a bit mono at times
Any additional comments?
The first section of the book is a dry read but it does get more interesting and I would recommend management types to read the book.
This book has enabled me to talk the same language as the quants I interact with. Great in that regard! It also helps you to think like a quant with the 6 steps / 3 stages framework.

Really is for the business manager and not the analyst. It doesn't use techy terminology but it does explain it. Loads of interesting examples and advice

Essential reading for small business or startups mainly working from the ground up. I found this audiobook very informative and entertaining. There was a lot of 'food for thought' here and I will be using the knowledge gained in the real world. Highly recommend!
