Additional info about financial planning.

Any additional comments?

The length of the recording vs the size of the book concerns me. I thought it would only be abridged because of charts and graphs. When he said go to his book for more info it made me mad. I bought the book in audible form but now you ALSO want me to buy it on paper. How about a web site to see the missing info. I may finally try to use the return policy. This is one probably better left to paper. Sorry.

Not much truth about money

Might be okay for the novice but redundant did the intermediate. Too much time spent on estate planning.
