Most listeners will want this audio treasure to continue forever and ever. It’s a collection of mini-biographies of the men and women who blazed the trails of professional money management. Veteran Wall Street reporter and Forbes Editor Richard Phalon takes a narrative look at his subjects, weaving sophisticated bits of history and culture into his stories and, throughout the audio, offering us attractive and accessible lessons about finding value in stocks. There are moral lessons, too, as the author chronicles the trials and errors of his subjects without shifting the focus from investment to melodrama. David Hilder is a smart and cocky interpreter who adds enough edginess to this material to grab the listener’s attention and hold it tight until the last word.
