Publisher's Summary

What will you learn from this audiobook?
Tackling nine specific financial myths, Killing Sacred Cows is a must for mission-driven individuals. It plainly reveals these shocking truths kept hidden by the traditional financial industry:

A 401(k) is not the "safe" and "smart" plan that you have been told it is; in fact, it's an extremely risky investment for most people. Learn to create safer investments that are collateralized, cash-flowing, controllable, and aligned with your expertise, passion, and purpose.
Conventional retirement planning strategies, techniques, and products are probably keeping you from the retirement you really want. You can maximize the productivity of your resources, reduce risk, and retire well with the right education and a proper macroeconomic plan.
Net worth is a poor indicator of wealth and your ability to retire well. What matters is cash flow, and this book will teach you how to develop it.
Debt may not be what you think it is. Learn the proper definition of debt and how this understanding can immediately increase your prosperity.
"High risk equals high returns" is dangerous dogma. Learn how to increase your returns and reduce your risk through smart, value-based investing.
How to identify the hidden factors that are causing you financial pain and misery.
Finally, you can treat more than just symptoms and address root causes.

By the time you're done listening to this book, you'll know more about personal finance than most financial advisors - and this is no joke! You'll discover how to take control of your finances now. After hearing it, you'll scoff at generic recommendations from financial advisors who push the same products on every client regardless of their unique personal goals and financial blueprint.

Poorly structured writing Yelled with unnatural cadence in your ear

I hated listening to this book. The author did cause me to think about a few things, so it wasn’t a total loss, but the presentation was poor. First off, the author even admits that his reading performance on this book is poor, and it was worse... He YELLS the content at you in manufactured enthusiasm. There are ubiquitous weird pauses and stumbles that ruin the cadence also. Beyond that, the structure of the writing is poor, rambling on in very loose focus and never getting to solidly distilled points. I think the author means we’ll, but the execution here is sub par in the underlying themes and development, organization and quality of writing, and in performance of the reading. If you like being yelled at and are willing to sift through the spaghetti to interact with this material then by all means give it a shot and you might get a very little out of it. I got a little spurring of my thought (actually didn’t agree with him, but that’s fine if I’m forced to think about my understanding of something) but I don’t think it was anywhere near worth the price if the audiobook.

Repetitive content with too much upsell

Some great content but all too often repetitive, vague and lacking solid details - instead referring the listener to various online education for sale and looping the same message to make enough pages for a book, when in fact it's an excellent report at best.

I did enjoy the unique content and questions posed, but it needed to be less wordy for sure. Maybe some of the ideas on the website references should have been in the book if they were important enough to reference and the price of the book raised to cover the authors time.
