Stanley Grahame Boy and Man:A tale of the dark continent Gordon Stables
Find out About the Psychology of Investing in a Fraction of the Time It Takes to Read the Actual Book! This book announces early on that its purpose is to help an average person adopt and carry out an investment policy. Rather than focusing on analyzing securities, the book devotes itself to explaining investment principles and attitudes. Its history of republication and new editions certainly secures its place as a worthwhile listen for any serious investor. The fourth edition´s preface by Warren Buffett, in which he claims that this is the best investment book he has read, does not hurt either. In the introduction Benjamin Graham explains that the book presents principles for intelligent investing while warning that there are no foolproof ways to make money. He names two types of investors: the defensive and the enterprising. The defensive investor is passive; his chief purpose is to avoid making serious mistakes or losses while also putting in less effort and making less frequent decisions. The enterprising investor is active or even aggressive; he is more than willing to devote time and energy to selecting securities that are stable and more attractive than average. Graham explains that the enterprising investor may expect better returns for his extra effort over the course of a few decades, but Graham doubts that substantial gain is guaranteed for that investor. He also details examples of how investment professionals, the experts, can and have been wrong. For instance, many investment companies favored airline stocks because they foresaw the number of travelers rising; the premise for their faith in these stocks was true - the number of frequent fliers did rise. However, the airlines themselves struggled to be profitable. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul Dandridge. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/057693/bk_acx0_057693_sample.mp3.

A brilliant novel of espionage and betrayal from ´one of Britain´s most accomplished thriller writers´ (Daily Mail) London 1963. The Beatles, Carnaby Street, mini-skirts. But the new mood hasn´t reached the drab and fearful corridors of MI5 and MI6. Many agents joined the secret service to fight the Nazis. Now they are locked in a Cold War against the Russians. And some of them are traitors. The service has been shaken to its core by the high-profile defections of Cambridge-educated spies Burgess, MacLean and now Philby. Appalled at such flagrant breaches of British security, the Americans are demanding a rigorous review. Harry Vaughan is brought back from Vienna to be part of it. The Chief asks him to join two investigators - Arthur Martin and Peter Wright - who are determined to clean out the stables, and the first target of their suspicions is the Deputy Director General of MI5, Graham Mitchell. Harry slips back into a relationship with an old flame, Elsa, and joins the hunt - somewhat reluctantly. He is sceptical of the case against Mitchell and wary of the messianic fervour of the two spycatchers. But the further the investigation goes - and the deeper his commitment to Elsa becomes - the greater the sense of paranoia and distrust that spreads through the ´wilderness of mirrors´ that is the secret service. The only certainty is that no-one is above suspicion. Including Harry Vaughan.
