Audible doesn't have full version

Any additional comments?

This audible book is not the most recent version of the book and leaves out several entire chapters.

Interesting but not new

George Soros comes across as a pompous billionaire who lacks the technical skills required to express his grandiouse 'Theory of Reflexivity' in general terms. However, the book did provide an interesting view of George Soros' career and some of the manias and panics he has profited from over the last few decades.

The book 'Manias, Panics, and Crashes' by Charles Kindleberger covers the same material and is easier and more enjoyable to read.
