I would have preferred a print version as Soros seems to use complex words and phrases when simpler ones would do just fine - and I have been in the investment business for 30 years.

If there ever were an economic or financial "philosopher" with credentials then George Soros is it. At first I didn't realize that who the author was and then it dawned on me that this was the old guy that Bill O'Reilly claims bought Obama's election and has nefarious plans concerning America since he is foriegn born. At any rate it doesn't matter I was a fish on the hook listening to this audiobook. Even the first part where he explains his falacy and bubble theories and other stuff I was fascinated. I listened two or three times to the first two hours just to digest all of the ideas brought forth. I thought Mr. Soros hypotheses were great, and it opened my mind to some new ideologies like cognitive science and how human interaction should be factored into economic models, and evolutionary economics. Look Mr. Soros is reasonable with his assessments and they are all well founded. Also he is right about how market fundamentalism has dunked our country and the world's head down the toilet bowl and given it a swirly. I would reccomend this audiobook to anyone. Bill O'Reilly is wrong about this guy.

Grover Gardner understands what he is reading. He isn't merely going through the lines he gets the message.
His timing is perfect. It's very digestible.
It had to be performed well because it is loaded with concepts unfamiliar with most readers. Unfamiliar messages are way harder to communicate... an author needs a great narrator.
Soros found such a person in Grover.
