Legendary investor Jim Rogers gives us his view of the world on a 22-month, 52-country motorcycle odyssey in his best-selling business/adventure book, Investment Biker, which has already sold more than 200,000 copies.
Before you invest another dollar anywhere in the world (including the United States), read this book by the man Time magazine calls "the Indiana Jones of finance".
Jim Rogers became a Wall Street legend when he co-founded the Quantum Fund. Investment Biker is the fascinating story of Rogers’s global motorcycle journey/investing trip, with hardheaded advice on the current state and future direction of international economies that will guide and inspire investors interested in foreign markets.

A right-wing ultra capitalist.
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."
The narration is pretty horrible, all vowels at the end of sentences are doubled which gives the narration a very choppy rhythm.
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.
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.
I have not read the print version
Good voice for the story
No extreme reaction, but does make you want to get on the road
Perfect mix of economics 101, real politics, and adventure.
