Adventure Capitalist: The Ultimate Investor's Road Trip

Wiley, 2003 - 357 páginas
"[Author] and his fiancée 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."--Jacket.

Dated at this point, but a worthwhile read if one is interested in how badly dysfunctional the world we live in is. Rogers is a surprisingly decent writer. Seems like a decent fellow also. Leer reseña completa

A bit of hyperbole in being the "only person ever to..." in some places, but very good. I wished he had focused a bit more on some places. Very illuminating and intriguing last chapter about the US and Greenspan. Leer reseña completa
