A very entertaining audiobook. One of the ones you just hate to turn off - and hate to see end. I came away with more of an understanding of global economics, cultures, and politics than through years of classes - and enjoying every minute of the trip. I would love, like Jim Rogers, to "retire" early and travel the world. But, in the meantime, this book requires a lot less planning - and is far less expensive.

Get the abridged version
I purchased the unabridged version, but somehow got the abridged version. It was quickly fixed, but in the meantime I listened to part of the abridged version. Its a quick and fun listen read by the author.
Then I listened to the unabridged version, or rather tried to. These are two completely different books. The abridged is read by the author who, despite his unprofessional reading, reads from a perspective of actually being there and knowing his own voice. You get the feeling that you're being told a story from the person who lived it. The unabridged version lacks that excitement.
If you like these types of books, then get the abridged version. You may disagree with the author's politics/philosophy, but its still a fun adventure story.
