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.More

Just What I Expected
I have not read the print edition but I prefer audiobooks over printed books as I listen to them in my car.
The narrator was fine. I do wish the book had been read by Jim Rogers himself as the book is essentially a letter to his two daughters. Jim is a good speaker and I think it would have added a little extra to the book.
As a father with a young daughter I really liked this book. Its not the typical investment book from Jim Rogers but rather a heartfelt letter to his two young children with advice and his prediction of what the future may look like for them.
Excellent advice for Life
