March’s Book: Adventure Capitalist

Jim Roger's Adventure Capitalist. So we’ve tackled the Nazis, Keynes' defunct economy, and George Orwell’s Animal Farm. Now let’s add a little fun to the Book Club.

Jim Rogers is known as the American Investor, for good reason. This guy is to investing as Colonel Sanders is to chicken. Sure, sure, he partnered with the Spooky Dude George Soros back in the day to launch the Quantum Fund, but hey, we all make mistakes.

His book Adventure Capitalist is the story about how he and his wife took three years and drove around the world, in order to experience other cultures and to find new investment opportunities.

“Behind the wheel of a sunburst-yellow, custom-built convertible Mercedes, Rogers and his fiancée, Paige Parker, began their Millennium Adventure on January 1, 1999, from Iceland. They traveled through 116 countries, including many where most have rarely ventured, such as Saudi Arabia, Myanmar, Angola, Sudan, Congo, Colombia, and East Timor. They drove through war zones, deserts, jungles, epidemics, and blizzards. They had many narrow escapes. They camped with nomads and camels in the Western Sahara. They ate silkworms, iguanas, snakes, termites, guinea pigs, porcupines, crocodiles, and grasshoppers. Best of all, they saw the real world from the ground up—the only vantage point from which it can be truly understood—economically, politically, and socially.” 3 years, 116 countries.

Humorous, but informative, the insights Rogers presents in this book are priceless, and show the perfect snapshot of where capitalism was at the turn of the century. The book itself is a quick read that will have you on the edge of your seat one moment, in tears the next, and in awe by the end.

Pick up your copy today for a life changing read, and we promise, there are no Nazis in this one.

    Awesome choice for the Book Club! Glad it's not so depressing! :D:D:D My favorite part of this book was how his wife only got food poisoning three times in the three years---all from 5 star restaurants!
