Summary
Although Barnum considered himself primarily a showman and his main goal was to put money in his own pocket, this little book, subtitled Golden Rules for Making Money does have a good deal of common sense about how to make money, and perhaps more importantly, how to keep it once you've made it. Of course, having been written nearly a century and a half ago, some of the advice may be a little dated, but it remains a very readable self-help book.

Good old book. Narration was tough to listen to- also every intro/ exit of every chapter was difficult.

The book is good the only thing wrong with it is the reading out at the end and start of EVERY chapter about the book & who was narrating it was really annoying

Simple, short and an amazing book, written more than 100 years ago, but it's principles still work today.

It's ok for free, with every chapter they repeated the author and name of book. The good thing was it was not too long at all, that would of made it a challenge.

Very interesting to find out that the knowledge of making money is pretty much timeless but the narrator could do a much better job. Sometimes the book was read too fast and every little chapter the intro/outro was annoying af especially by the end of the book.

The advice is timeless, including much to do about saving, advertising, treatment of employees, and even a bit on ethics before ethics was even a thing in business. Great book! Too bad the audio was of such poor quality. At least it was a free download.

Interesting to here past views and what is the same and what is so drastically different.

Good practical book on money. I recommend listening at 1.25 speed and the readers voice will sound much more natural. ;)

I thought the content of the book was very insightful, however the sound quality was awful.

Good book. First time using an audiobook so it'll take some getting use to hearing someone else's voice rather than reading it myself.

A great book with simple metaphors/stories to get the point across. There's very helpful information that will change your life, if you follow it.

Straight to the point, no time wasted and all points are applicable today. Ever green. Thanks to P T Barnum and to the narrator.

I can’t finish this book. I’m sure it’s decent, but the narrator sounds almost computer generated and is annoying to listen to. I quit after 5 minutes or so.

The narrator is boring to listen to. And talking about the company in between every chapter is annoying

A good introduction to Ford at a teenage level. The reader was bland and did nothing to increase the readers interest.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, regardless of the fact it was written 150 years ago. It more a book on business maners and respect, than the ‘man eat man’ business of today.

Nice book with some handy tips to make you think about. Sound and narration not so good. Dob’t forget to put at least x1.2 speed when listening, it helps a lot.

The book is a classic. It contains timeless information and offers advice that is still very useful today. My only concern is the narrator. She is not very good.
