Review

Praise for A GIFT TO MY CHILDREN
Hey Jim!
What a lovely, lovely book! (A Gift to My Children). Though I've read all you've written, this one 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: Author of The Notebook, Dear John, and The Last Song

By Stella Carrier TOP 500 REVIEWER on Jan. 28 2013
Format: Hardcover
"A Gift To My Children" by Jim Rogers provides some quality insight from the author through the perspective of tailoring it to his daughters. There is helpful information such as refusing to let age stop a person from going after their goals, living life with at least one main dream in mind, and striving to work towards personal dreams regardless of the external circumstances that may emerge. "A Gift To My Children" by Jim Rogers is a quick read and is good for those who enjoy motivational tidbits.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Joyce on May 22 2010
Format: Hardcover
Jim Rogers writes a short, witty, easy to read book. I bought this as a gift to someone else after reading the Chinese version. The Chinese version has a more attractive layout since there are photos & the tidbits of wisdom spread throughout the book, whereas in the English version all of the tidbits of wisdom & humour are all together in the end "epilogue" section. This book is a sweet gift from a father to a daughter, or from a parent to a child. It talks about character building, what's really important in life and financial wisdom. If you were looking for a book about exact details of how to use buy stocks, then this is not the book for you. This is more about foundation of why Mr. Rogers is so wealthy today and how you can become wealthy. He talks about various aspects of wealth: such as having freedom, knowledge, education, a supportive spouse/partner, good advice, etc. I thought that it was well worth it & my family loved it as well. Mr. Rogers did a wonderful job!

Nice book and probably will enjoy this more as my kids get bigger. Jim Rogers, despite being arrogant, is a great writer and I enjoy his works!!
