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!

Very good summary of Ray's principles

Well narrated and concisely summarised. Best part is it can be listened to quickly in one or two short sessions and one can gain very useful insight into Ray Dalio's lifetime of work principles! Highly recommended.

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.

Great quick listen

I greatly enjoy Ray’s perspective. It’s refreshing and doesn’t just align with the social norms. It’s based one real life experiences and is very intentional. This short book is chalked full of “knowledge nuggets.” At x2 speed it only takes 30 minutes to listen to. You could listen to it several times in a row and will come away with new take always each time. Thanks, Ray!

Summarizing books

I really appreciated In a Nutshell Publishings review/summary of this book, it was nice to have all the key points right at my fingertips and repeated. It will be easy and fast to relisten to this book in the future to remember and implement these points.

Too repetitive.

Repeats 2 or 3 times each principle. Could be shorter. Didnt read Ray Dalios book but think original book must be more interesting than this summary.

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
