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!
