Money well spent. A good investment.

A first class book, which is quite different in style from any of the top selling self help titles of the last decade. An absolute must for anyone who is serious about becoming wealthy, who suffers from status anxiety, or who simply wants to improve their financial position. A series of well presented observations based solidly on extensive research. Its not what you earn, but how you spend it. Some of the facts presented are quite startling and should shatter any common misconceptions about wealthy people that you may have. The evidence is backed up quite extensively with facts and figures and statistics, which could easily become boring, especially in audio format. However, somehow the truly excellent reading style of Cotter Smith kept my attention throughout. Why don?t more authors and publishers insist on this level of quality when choosing a narrator for audio books? At times we English have been known to take exception to American accents, but this guy is pure class. A delight to listen to. Worth every penny.

Skip the abridged version

This abridged version is very disappointing. There are some valuable insights, but the details seem missing. When I bought this from Audible the unabridged version was not available – it is available now. Skip the abridgment and read the whole thing. It will definitely be more valuable than this abridgment.
