I need a mustacharian "audiobook" recommendation
« on: March 18, 2017, 08:06:06 PM »
I want to close my audible account and I am at my wits end trying to decide what to use my 1 credit for 1 book. All the frugal/finance books seem to be get rich screams. Any recommendations?

There's no rush. I ended my subscription service and still got to keep my remaining credit.

The best finance book I've read hands down has been A Random Walk Down Wall Street. Many of the others haven't said any more than what's readily available on finance blogs (and have said it with equally unimpressive writing).

If you're interested in broader things like how the 2008 crash happened and why it was such a mess afterwards, I'd recommend Neil Barofsky's Bailout.

Are there any books available by Jack Bogle and read by him? He's the founder of Vanguard, incredibly knowledgeable, and has a lovely deep voice.

The 3-book bundle Your Way to Success is a good value for one credit. I liked the first book better than the next two (different narrator), but even then it's a good deal. Each book is a collection of book summaries for the top books in their genre. So you get an overview of many famous books.

I discovered 'OverDrive' app that allows you to get audiobooks for free from your library :) I was doing Audible too and cancelled as didn't want to pay the amount each month.
