Shallow understanding

Author has simply listed out the investments. Very little in depth analysis. Reader is mechanical.

Audio Quality Horrific

What disappointed you about Moats?

Overall, the book was just OK. Quite repetitive, and once you heard about 2-3 companies, everything was the same.

Biggest complaint though was the audio quality. It sounded like it was recorded in some guy's basement. COUNTLESS mispronunciations, and grammatical mistakes. The guy messed up so many times, it made it nearly impossible to listen. There were major errors and gaps in the audio where the reader made a mistake, but no one ever edited it out. By far the lowest quality audio I have ever heard on Audible.

Some useful info, but mostly pointless

Lots of repetition, no real analysis. A few of the case studies were interesting but most were just regurgitated basic facts that gave really little insight. The voiceover was relatively poor too. Overall a waste of money.
