Collectively, people think and act in ways that are different from how they think and act as individuals. Understanding these differences, says William (Bill) Bonner, a longtime maverick observer of the financial world and the vagaries of the investing public, is vital to preserving your wealth and personal dignity. From the witch hunts of the early modern world to the war on terror, from the dot-com mania to the real-estate bubble, people have always been caught up in frauds, conceits, and wild guesses - often with devastating results. Now Bonner and co-author Lila Rajiva show groupthink at work in an improbable array of instances throughout history and reveal why swimming against the current pays. They explain why people so often abandon good sense and good behavior to ´´follow the crowd´´ and show you how to avoid getting caught up in the public spectacles around you. If an investor merely recognizes the way mob sentiment works, he is far ahead of others. Ordinary people turn billions of dollars worth of their hard-earned money over to brokers and fund managers daily, believing that these strangers will give them back even more. Why? This audiobook demonstrates that investors are in fact caught between a rock and a soft place - between the private world they can understand and master and the misleading public spectacle of the markets. ´´The farther away you get from your investments, and the less you suffer the consequences if they go bad, the worse your performance will be,´´ say Bonner and Rajiva. ´´That´s why ´collective´ investments like index-linked funds, mutual funds, hedge funds, insurance funds, and pension funds are usually so bad. The investors are too far from the facts, and the managers are too far from the consequences.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Erik Synnestvedt.

The financial services industry - including banks, brokerages, and insurance companies - is unique among all others. Through effective advertising and marketing, it´s been able to evade being painted with the brush that other underperforming industries have, and in most cases, their well-designed sales pitch has allowed them to effectively prey on the emotional desires of investors. Based on author David Loeper´s nearly 25 years of experience with this industry´s inner workings, Stop the Investing Rip-off reveals the real costs of the investments we make, details the false and misleading information sold to us, and discusses the devastating effects they can have on personal wealth.With this audiobook as your guide, you´ll gain invaluable insights into the major segments of the financial-services industry, how they spin their offerings, and the questions you need to ask before committing any money to a financial product or service you may be interested in. 1.

Bon vivant and expert sleuth Sam Levitt and his partner in love and intrigue, Elena Morales, return in the latest installment of the delightfully sun-splashed Provençal Caper series. When a Riviera socialite´s diamonds are stolen - the latest in a string of seemingly unconnected but ever-more-audacious jewelry heists across France - Elena flies in to investigate the insurance claim. It´s a trip she´s more than happy to make, as it gives her a chance to meet up with old friends in Marseille - and, particularly, with Sam. Once reunited, Sam isn´t entirely distracted by domestic matters. In the pattern of these ´´perfect crimes´´, he´s beginning to see a master at work, and he´s quickly determined to connect and solve the cases. But as he and Elena dig deeper, they begin to realize just how much is connected and how dangerous it may be to pursue the whole truth. Meanwhile, there´s a house to renovate, rosé to share, and feasts of Provençal summer bounty to enjoy. Full of Peter Mayle´s inimitable wit and style, The Diamond Caper is sure to charm faithful fans and new listeners alike. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Erik Davies.

Set in Hollywood, Paris, Bordeaux, and Marseille, Peter Mayle’s newest and most delightful novel is filled with culinary delights, sumptuous wines, and colorful characters. It’s also a lot of fun.The story begins high above Los Angeles, at the extravagant home and equally impressive wine cellar of entertainment lawyer Danny Roth. Unfortunately, after inviting the Los Angeles Times to write an extensive profile extolling the liquid treasures of his collection, Roth finds himself the victim of a world-class wine heist.Enter Sam Levitt, former corporate lawyer, cultivated crime expert, and wine connoisseur. Called in by Roth´s insurance company, which is now saddled with a multimillion-dollar claim, Sam follows his leads - to Bordeaux and its magnificent vineyards, and to Provence to meet an eccentric billionaire collector who might possibly have an interest in the stolen wines. Along the way, bien sûr, he is joined by a beautiful and erudite French colleague, and together they navigate many a château, pausing frequently to enjoy the countryside´s abundant pleasures.The unraveling of the ingenious crime is threaded through with Mayle’s seductive rendering of France’s sensory delights - from a fine Lynch-Bages and Léoville Barton to the bouillabaisse of Marseille and the young lamb of Bordeaux. Even the most sophisticated of oenophiles will learn a thing or two from this vintage work by a beloved author. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Erik Davies.
