What made the experience of listening to The Investors Manifesto the most enjoyable?
I reviewed his other book, the Four Pillars of Investing, so I will be brief here. Covers a lot of material that will help most, if not all, investors. Gets specific about portfolio design and asset allocation for different type of investors which is critical and very helpful. Although I still don't understand his short term bond allocation investments for long term investors, even after listening to this book twice. Jack Bogle and others often recommend intermediate bond allocation but there is no absolute strategy that we know for sure will work for future markets.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Dr. Bernstein of course, great sense of humor and smart.
What does Scott Peterson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He fulfilled his role, didn't distract me from concentrating on the dense material. Many times find his voice very soothing.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
No really, great book overall.
Any additional comments?
There are countless indexes, bonds, REIT's etc listed in this audiobook as well as charts, graphs, and portfolio allocations. I knocked a half a star off this audiobook for not supplying some supplemental pdf files with this info. For example, Tony Robbins MONEY Master the Game audiobook provides, for no extra cost, 40 pdf files of charts and the alike to compliment his audio book. I would pay extra for these type of files if offered. So listen up future audiobook writers and producers. hope this helped.

I like the concepts Bernstein teaches, but in Audiobook form it's too much to take. Way too many charts and graphs being read by the narrator. Endless readings of math calculations, mutual fund listings and tables of data. Don't buy the audiobook, get the actual book. I wish i had!
