Description
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.
