The Art of Money Getting

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: P. T. Barnum

Narrated By: Jill Preston

Publisher: LibriVox

Date: January 2016

Duration: 1 hours 38 minutes


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.

    simple short and fun to listen!

  • Tomasz H.

    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.

  • Michael C.

    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.

  • Anthony M.

    Very interesting but would like to read again. Next time straight through.

  • Erica m

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

  • Denis K

    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

  • Garrett L

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

  • Karl D

    Wisdom worth taking the time to listen to from a man that accomplished so much during his interesting life.
