Review:

Wealth does strange things to people. It can either control them or set them free. Jim Rogers falls into the latter camp. Like an angst-free Marlon Brando, this Wild One quit his Quantum fund job alongside George Soros at the age of 37, saddled up a powerful BMW and revved his way into a personal dream.

In 1990, Rogers set out with his girlfriend on a marathon global tour, chasing the summer and the prevailing economic climate across six continents and reporting home in his easily adopted role of Investment Biker. The result, even after all these years, is a gloriously entertaining flight of reality. Part travelogue, part investment guide, Rogers himself is the real centrepiece, at times railing (if that's the right word) against local custom/ideology/policy, on other occasions providing eye-opening investment tips on where the sensible money should be going. Shunning the usual tourist routes, Rogers' odyssey takes him through landscapes and economies unique in culture and currency where his natural charisma shines through in easy-going commentary. It's not all image though; Rogers' predictions on emerging markets have proved by and large to be unerringly accurate.

Whatever you want from a book, Investment Biker can probably supply it: thrills, spills, rampaging elephants and economic theory. Dig out those leathers and enjoy the ride. --Jake Bond

Review:

"Eclectic and didactic, yet strangely compelling." –– Business Age
