The Bloomberg brand is well known in the world of professional financial information. Thus, it is well positioned to help consumers make better choices. Apparently, this mandate was lost on the producers of this books and audio versions. The handsome packaging disguises some basic flaws. Several of the titles are only partially indicative of what's inside.Far more space and time are devoted to general personal finance issues than the titles would suggest. Although Mary Rowland is known as a journalist, writing is not one of her strong points. Nor is reading aloud. Her voice is grating. Her delivery is irritatingly singsong. The combination of poor writing and reading does not meet professional standards no matter how accurate the information might be. M.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 99]
