Great for investors of all levels!

Glassman's "Secret Code" is a fantastic primer on investing for both the beginning and the seasoned investor. He covers all the basics of investing with a straight-to-the-point, jargon-free directness, and his narrative style is very easy to listen to. In a nutshell, the secret code is the same one used by the most successful investors in history: buy stock in solid companies that you understand and hold it for the long term. His explanations of value vs growth investing and his debunking of the "market timing" "day-trader" mindset are right on target. If you're considering investing in stocks or bonds, start with this book. If your portfolio was burned by the tech bubble or the Tyco/Enron/WorldCom scandals, this book will re-energize you and give you courage. This is simply the best audiobook on investing I've heard yet.

Terrible

This is obveously sponsored by the mutal fund industry who continue to feed the garbage of buy and hold for the long term. Let me tell you all that this program tries to tell in in a few hrs time. Buy and Hold. Thats it no real knowledge. By the way Buy and Hold is about as stupid as it gets.
