Publisher's Summary

Summary of Principles: Life and Work, by Ray Dalio.

Important note: This is a book summary of Principles by Ray Dalio and not the original book.

Referred to as the "Steve Jobs of Investing", Ray Dalio is one of the world's most successful investors and entrepreneurs. In his book, he shares the unconventional principles he's developed, refined, and used over the past 40 years to create unique results in both life and business - and which any person or organization can adopt to help achieve his or her goals. Dalio believes everything in life can be systematized into rules and understood like machines. This book shows you how to easily and efficiently do that.

I believe the wisdom in this audiobook summary to be well worth it's value. This audiobook allows you to skip to the nuggets of wisdom and actionable content in a very easily absorbed way, including key takeaways at the end of each chapter. Save yourself time and money!

This audiobook contains a wealth of knowledge at a fair price with no risks.

Concise

This is most helpful and not straining especially for someone who does not have the time to complete the original (yet). Takeaways are straight to the point. It's a good listen.

I want to live the way you do.

Excellent principles to live by. One question , what is the best way to deal with upper management that may not always embody all the principles stated in your book.

The author does a terrific job of cutting out the material that you would not miss, And focusing in on the bullets and key takeaways.
It reads:
-Summary of material taken out
-Key takeaways
-Summary of takeaways

Not that useful

maybe the longer book was better but I got 1 massive takeaway which was just to look for massive talent irrespective of what position they can fulfill and find a seat for them

Straight to the point

I noticed the original book from Ray Dalio on audible was 16 hours worth of listening time.

So I looked for a condensed version to extract the most important information with ease.

For only $5 AUD id say its well wort it

So If you are looking to learn the key summaries of principles in under an hour then I recommend listening to this
