"This helpful book promises to help listeners earn back recent financial losses due to the economic meltdown that has befallen the nation-- or just to improve their economic status in general. The author, CNN’s chief business correspondent, narrates his own work. The information is top-notch, and the presentation is professional. Velshi gets his point across in a clear-cut manner without sounding overly assertive. Most importantly, the material is laid out in a way that makes it accessible to listeners. Velshi's voice is powerful and honest, and, despite his extensive knowledge of the economy, he never comes off as condescending or unsympathetic."
