In Adventure Capitalist, legendary investor Jim Rogers, dubbed the Indiana Jones of finance by Time magazine, proves that the best way to profit from the global situation is to see the world mile by mile.

Rogers and his fiancée, Paige Parker, 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.

Here are just a few of the author's conclusions:

  • The new commodity bull market has started.
  • The twenty-first century will belong to China.
  • A dramatic shortage of women is developing in Asia.
  • Pakistan is on the verge of disintegrating.
  • India, like many other large nations, will break into several countries.
  • The Euro is doomed to fail.
  • There are fortunes to be made in Angola.
  • Nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) are a scam.
  • Bolivia is a comer after decades of instability, thanks to gigantic amounts of natural gas.

    Adventure Capitalist is the most opinionated, sprawling, adventurous journey you're likely to take within the pages of a book - the perfect read for armchair adventurers, global investors, car enthusiasts, and anyone interested in seeing the world and understanding it as it really is.

      " I really enjoyed this book. It was interesting to read about the author's adventures and experiences as he travelled around the world. I also appreciated his thoughts about the political and economical situations of many of the places he visited. He is an engaging writer and the book was surprisingly easy to read and enjoy. There were some slow spots but nothing that kept me from picking it back up again. "

      " I listened to the abridged audio narrated by the author himself. A fascinating trip that's probably a dream for everyone although the world might already changed somewhat since he published the book in 2003. "
