ADVENTURE CAPITALIST The Ultimate Investor's Road Trip

by | Read by Jim Rogers

Business & Finance • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2003

Jim Rogers and his fiancée (now wife), Paige Parker, drove around the world in a BMW from January 1999 through December 2001. They drove through 116 countries so that Rogers, an investment analyst, could understand their economies and investment possibilities, particularly in emerging and third-world countries. Slowly and succinctly, Rogers reads about his exciting journey with a subtle Mississippi accent, sometimes softly slurring words, other times enunciating them with precision. His firsthand knowledge of places and people adds to the smoothness of his narration. Yet he always seems to be reading his story, maintaining a distance from its excitement and adventure. Since the majority of his trip was before September 11, 2001, and the book was written in 2003, he includes follow-up discussion on how that event impacted his investment decisions. A great adventure, no matter how you look at it. M.B.K.
