Publisher's Summary

This course is a very hands-on companion to Peter Navarro's two books on investing. The best-selling If It's Raining in Brazil, Buy Starbucks introduced the revolutionary concept of Big Picture Investing as a way to not only profit - but also protect your portfolio from heavy losses. Since the publication of that book, the author has received countless requests to illustrate, in a very detailed way, just how to apply Big Picture Investing to the day-to-day management on individual portfolios. Hence, this exciting audio course.

Easy to understand for the most part.

This audiobook is well written and easy to understand. I agree that it makes the concepts of economics and investing easy to understand but I have to point out a huge gaff. This is actually very odd since the author is a Harvard Phd. Either the narrator read his lines wrong or the author wrote it wrong: "The strong dollar is inflationary because Americans now have to pay more for imports." >??? (I had to rewind it a few times before to makes sure I heard it right). That's just the opposite of what would happen. Some of the wordage in some areas is a little strange and it makes you want to rewind and hear it over again. Kind of annoying. Aside from that it is very helpful because it really does bring into perspective the Big Picture of investing. I recommend this despite the huge gaff and the imperfect use of English.

Not for casual listening

This one is going to need all your attention. Download and print the course material, take notes and rewind as often as you need to. the effort will be well rewarded. Plan to spend at least 30-40 hours on this course. It is not one that you can listen to in your car.
