Top 20 Best Stock Market Investing Audio Books [All Time]

A Review of the Very Best Stock Market, Wall Street & Financial Audio Books of All Time on Audible.

Financial Crimes, Ponzi Schemes, Crashes & great Investing Advice Books, we have it all.

The Stock Market and the world of finance can be a wild place fuelled by ego’s, testosterone and pure greed.

Often this fear and greed make for some amazing stories.

Audiobooks are a great way to absorb knowledge when you do not have time to sit down and read.  You can enjoy audiobooks when driving, hiking, walking and even when gardening.

I personally get through at least 50 books per year and I have listened to all the books on this list and many more, not on this list.  These are my All-Time Favorites 

1 – The Little Book that Still Beats the Market – Joel Greenblatt

Rating – 5 Stars – The Best

A short but fascinating book looking at a specific system which the author declares and proves makes a regular profit.  I have Back-tested this system personally and it works very well, it is a little high maintenance, but the lessons help within are vital.  It is also quite humorous which is welcome in the dry world of investing.

I will be approaching Mr. Greenblatt with my systems soon, but suffice to say, a top lesson on finding great companies.

A great introduction to a stock market system.

2 – Flash Boys – Michael Lewis

Rating – 5 Stars – Must Read

A gripping bestseller that blew open the secrecy behind high-frequency trading (HFT) and embarrassed Wall Street, large investment banks and even retail brokers.

This is THE 2014 book to read.  It is not just hype, Lewis has research and investigative journalism on his side.

Unveiling the unfair way HFT trading is seeking to rip off not just American Investors but the whole globe, Lewis deserves more than a best seller, he deserves a knighthood.

5 – The Alpha Masters – Maneet Ahuja

Rating – 4.5 Stars – Highly Recommended

A detailed behind the scenes look at successful hedge fund managers and the industry, including their investing styles.

Understanding how the hedge funds operate and the tactics and strategies they adopt is important for your overall understanding of the market.

Also, it is interesting to see the rise and fall of these Alpha Masters and the psychology of how they deal with it.

6 – The 86 Biggest Lies on Wall Street – John R. Talbott

Rating – 4.5 Stars – Highly Recommended

Talbott’s 86 biggest lies on Wall Street is a good book and an easy read. Some of the “lies” are difficult to agree with but on the whole a good insight into the views of Wall Street and Government.

Positives: Although Talbott tells you what all the lies are, his version of the truths are also debatable. A firm view against the use of technical analysis to analyze stocks and market shows he is no expert in this area.

However, these flaws in his reasoning are balanced with good and compelling arguments against many of the preconceptions we have today regarding governments, corporations, venture capital, and economics”.

Negatives: Some interesting arguments, especially if you have a left-wing conspiracy theory bent.

7 – The Big Short – Michael Lewis

Rating – 4.5 Stars – Highly Recommended

A great story involving the few men who bet against the investment banks going into the 2007 financial crisis.

Lewis has a way of writing that adds great storytelling to the factual background of what went on before and after the credit crunch.

It is a really great listen and also has been made into a hit Hollywood movie.


8 – The Little Book of Common Sense Investing [New for 2018]

Rating – 4.5 Stars – Highly Recommended

John C Bogle
The creator of the worlds first Index Tracking fund shares the critically important reasons why you should not be actively trading stock, commodities, and ETF, but investing long term.

The key messages are very clear and passionately explained in the book.  Essentially, using any stock advisors, stock pickers or mutual funds are going to work out negatively for your investments over the long term.

This is incredibly important information that everyone needs to understand. Taxes, Broker Costs, Mutual Fund Manager Costs and Financial Advisor costs will severely eat away at the long-term compounding power of your investments.

Positives: Short and sweet and backed up with plenty of proof to back up the assertions he makes.

Negatives: Constantly repeats “Don’t take my word for it’, gets a little annoying after a while.

Score 76% – Content: 4/5 – Applicability: 3/5 – Readability: 5/5 – Fundamentals: 5/5 – Technical Analysis: 1/5

9 – Full of Bull – Stephen T. McClellan

Rating – 4.5 Stars – Highly Recommended

An insiders account of how Wall Street Financial Analysts really operate. This book deciphers the double talk and outright misleading way Stock Market Analysts cover the markets and how to really read their advice.

I came away with the thought to never trust a Wall Street analyst and do my own research.

Positives: A good addition to any bookshelf with insights into how companies manipulate earnings and how Wall Street Analysts sit in a microcosm of influence from the big company CEO’s.

Negatives: Some of the book became a little tiresome to read, but was none the less interesting.

10 – The Wolf of Wall Street – Jordan Belfort

Rating – 4 Stars – Highly Recommended

Ever wondered who is behind the cold call you get from a company you have never heard of, trying to sell you stocks in a company you know nothing about.

Belfort provides a thrilling and entertaining view of his life as a Chop House Stock Broker.

High on entertainment, this book is a roller coaster ride description of the personal life of Belfort himself.

A really great book that was recently turned into a Hollywood blockbuster.

11 – The Buy Side – Turney Duff

Rating – 4 Stars – Highly Recommended

An excellent insight into how the buy side operates on the financial market and just how much money these guys get to play with.

On a similar vein to Wolf of Wall Street, this is also a future film in the making.  A true story looking into Wall Streets underbelly, the crooked practices and the insane after work parties.

Do you really want these people managing YOUR money?

Well worth listening to.

12 – The Snowball – Warren Buffet

Rating – 4 Stars – Highly Recommended

By far the very best Warren Buffet Book.

Weighing in at 37 hours for the unabridged version (which I listened to), I would seriously recommend the abridged version 10 hours as it gets to the meat without all the waffle.

He has had a great life and is the worlds most successful investor.

This is a very worthwhile way to spend your time.

Rating – 4 Stars – Highly Recommended

Charting the authors experience working for a Wall Street Investment bank.

Rating – 3.5 Stars – Recommended

A highly entertaining read covering the scams and mafia infiltrations of Wall Street.

Following the rise and fall of a fast-talking stock market hustler all is revealed about the seedy side of when the mafia knocked on Wall Streets door.

Almost unbelievable, but a true story.

18 – Running of the Bulls – Christopher Smith

Rating – 3 Stars – Recommended

A great fictional financial thriller involving 12 people targeted for murder by the double-crossed Wolfhagen.

This will have you on the edge of your seat.

19 – The Intelligent Investor – Benjamin Graham

Rating – 3 Stars – Worth a Listen

A classic book written by Ben Graham, the father of Value Investing. Warren Buffet was also strongly influenced by Graham.

Positives: A huge amount of valuable insight and knowledge. The revised version with comments from Jason Zweig brings the book up to date with new examples of how the book’s tenets still hold true.

Negatives: With an overwhelming 623 pages and a very dry writing style you will need a lot of coffee to get you through.

An absolutely compelling read.

21. No One Would Listen – Harry Markopolos

“No one would Listen” by Harry Markopolos. This is a thrilling account of the rise and fall of Bernie Madoff and how difficult it was for Markopolos himself to get the Securities & Exchange Commission to take action.

I was on the edge of my seat during the book and exasperated for Markopolos. You have to see this only to understand the depth of the problem of trying to oversee the companies that take advantage of the lazy money.

Respect to Markopolos for his ordeal and for sharing this great story.  A gripping listen.
