Book Description

May 12 2009
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars nice read May 22 2010
By Joyce
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!!
