What makes for a successful investor? More important, what makes for a happy and meaningful life? According to legendary investor Jim Rogers, the road to financial success and the road to a meaningful life are one and the same. In A Gift to My Children, Rogers lays out his advice to young people on how to achieve the financial success they need to live their dreams. A Gift to My Children is anchored by the two basic rules Rogers invests—and lives—by. The first is that you have to see the world up close if you're going to understand how it works, and the second is that you must always question conventional wisdom. Using a mix of stories from his childhood in Alabama, as well as his experiences at Yale, Oxford, in the army, in his world travels, and over the course of his investing career, Rogers explains how he has applied these principles in his own life and why they have made him so wildly successful. An accessible, entertaining, story-driven guide to a happy and successful life, A Gift to My Children will introduce Jim Rogers to a new generation. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “What a lovely, lovely book! Though I’ve read all you’ve written, [A Gift to My Children] really touched me. It is, of course, a love letter to your daughters, which is not only a wonderful, meaningful thing to do, but it was filled with exactly the kind of advice all fathers should give. Your new book will stay on my shelf for a long, long time, and I’ll be giving it to my own kids to read.”

    Nicholas Sparks, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Longest Ride

  • “Legendary investor Rogers…wrote this small memoir to share with them some of the insights that he has garnered from his experiences…These and other nuggets of wisdom from this self-made man are worth reading several times over.”


Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Donna | 2/7/2014

    " The book is well written and would be excellent for a young adult but an older adult is apt to find it a little simplistic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Daisy Luo | 12/8/2013

    " Quick easy read from Jim Rogers. Whilst some of the advice seems unconventional, they are in fact practical and wise. Take it from a successful guy whose travelled almost everywhere and nearing his 70s. The advice on life is great but I would be cautious of any of his investment advice and "predictions". Still it is a book I would rely to my children. "

    " Got it because it was cheap. I like Jim Rogers. I don't know what I was thinking when I bought this book since I'm a guy and don't have any daughters. But oh well, the book is ok. Don't expect too much financial advice. It was amusing and it has some nice nuggets here and there. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Kent | 10/31/2013

    " Not as good as I thought it might be, but nonetheless, this is an easy read in a little book filled with a Father's advice to his daughters on living life to its fullest, investing wisely and preparing for the future world dominated by countries of Asia, particularly China. "
