    Story
    "Horrible drivel"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    A right-wing ultra capitalist.


    What could Jim Rogers have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Limit himself to a few main ideas he wants to push through, as is, Jim fires of a scatter gun of pretty wild and outrageous geopolitical and economic ideas.I get the feeling he's hoping for at least one of them to turn into reality just so he can say, "I knew that would happen, I wrote it in a book."


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narration is pretty horrible, all vowels at the end of sentences are doubled which gives the narration a very choppy rhythm.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Investment Biker?

    All the supposed "random" meetings with people who exactly mirror Jims own opinion.The nonsense about humanitarian aid stemming the "entrepreneurial spirit" of starving people was an insult to anyone with any humanity.


    Any additional comments?

    He actually claims that he wants his trip to be completely serendipitous, still he just happens to stumble upon people who mirrors his exact views on everything.What are the odds of stumbling upon a soon to be capitalist in Soviet communist Siberia who that same day is resigning from the communist party?And what exactly was Jim doing in a Moscow kindergarten where he "serendipitously" happens to meet a dissident from a labour camp who prophesied the fall of the Soviet Union.
    After a few of these supposed random encounters you really start to question the credibility of this publication on anything but Jim's own views and opinions.
