Download any Audio Book on Amazon.com for Free

  download-free-bookA lot of people ask us how we have time to read so many books. The truth is… we don’t! We listen to audiobooks. The beauty of audio books is you can knock-out two things at the same time. For example, driving, standing in line for your glamour shots at the mall, or just doing the dishes. All joking aside, reading a book every two weeks is probably the most profound element to our success in business. That's why we have worked hard with Amazon.com to get an exciting deal lined up for all the Investor's Podcast listeners. If you click on our exclusive link to Amazon's Audibles, you can download any free audio book straight onto your smartphone! If you don't like the service within 30 days, keep the free book and cancel the service. Amazon's Audibles has the largest listing of audio books in the world with over 180,000 titles. I personally use Audibles because it has the cheapest prices, the best reliability, and the largest selection of titles (You pick the books through Amazon.com). Making a commitment to read a new book each month is hands-down the most important investment you can make. - Preston & Stig
