Rezension bezieht sich auf: Adventure Capitalist: The Ultimate Road Trip (Taschenbuch)
The trip described in this book is undoubtedly the best investing adventure that anyone has ever experienced. The trip experience is a worthy sequel to Investment Biker. This time he travels in a bright yellow Mercedes with a trailer . . . accompanied by a camera crew in another Mercedes.

The book itself is extremely superficial, and has little to do with investing. Most of the material is about getting visas, crossing borders, bribing officials, eating foods you won't find at home, the local sexual tourism activities, the state of the buildings, whose picture he took with a Polaroid camera, and whether or not Mr. Rogers had to hire a military convoy. In most countries, he notes how wrong his opinions were on his last visit during Investment Biker. So why will he be right this time?

Where he does draw conclusions, there is little support for his findings. A major theme is the start of a new upward commodity price cycle upward. You'll look long and hard without finding any evidence to support that conclusion.

The most interesting parts come, however, where he draws the opposite conclusion from what you have heard reported. For instance, Mr. Rogers found religion to be freely practiced by all faiths throughout China. He says that tourism is better in Tanzania than in Kenya. He recommends avoiding the climb up Mount Kilimanjaro. He reports well on the many ways that Americans annoy the rest of the world, and the harm done by nongovernmental organizations. The scams involving charity from the United States will also be an eye-opener.

This book will be most appealing to those who are considering driving through some of these countries. It's the only book I know of that provides realistic information about the road conditions and personal safety issues for such a large number of countries. You'll learn that it's best to drive a Mercedes because of the amazing string of dealerships that are described in the book (because all of the corrupt officials and most successful criminals around the world favor Mercedes-Benz automobiles).

For the most part, though, this is just a self-indulgent book about how a rich man uses his wealth and ingenuity to amuse himself.

If you want to read an intriguing book about investment-oriented travel, I recommend Investment Biker over this one.

After you finish the book, if you decide to read it, I suggest that you think about how you can help someone be a better investor. Who needs that help? What do they need to know? How can they learn those important facts?
