This book is about the author's amazing trip across six continents and the world economy and society. It discusses who's sinking and who's swimming, which countries are on the rise and which are collapsing, where you can make a million and where you could lose one. Every place he stopped on the trip, Rogers talked to businessmen, bankers, investors and regular people. He learned reams of information that you'd never learn from reading the financial pages of any periodical. Delivers a thrilling account of the journey of a lifetime and provides tips that would enable you to pay for a trip just like it.
  • I have been impressed for the last 20+ years by Jim's financial and economic analysis which has appeared on tv, the net and in various publications. However, this is the first of his books I have read and I was overwhelmed by his knowledge of the world and local economies which he interjected numerous times throughout the book as he discussed his challenging world wide motorcycle ride. I found his insights and future economic and political forecasts for various countries quite applicable to the current day experiences including many that have surfaced over the last 10+ years in the US and in the recent national elections. His view of how the world and the US will change going forward and the opportunities that will most likely be squandered are quite sobering. It is amazing that the book is over 20 years old.

  • Jim Rogers' recounting of his around the world motorcycle trip with his girlfriend "Tabitha" (I use quotation marks because I'm guessing that is not her actual name) is a great read. The author tells about most of the countries through which they traveled. His focus is on these key items:
    - Road conditions and interesting sites along the way (e.g., Great Wall, Sahara Desert, Trans-Siberian Railroad, Red Square, Congo River, Victoria Falls, etc.);
    - Investment climate in most countries;
    - World history and politics (his bachelor's degrees in these subjects - Yale and Oxford - are quite apparent and his tales are enlightening);
    - Motorcycle maintenance issues he and "Tabitha" encounter
    - A very healthy dose of his philosophy of economics: his distaste for socialist or communist (statist) governments and affection for market-based economies;
    - Many tales of the challenges of crossing international borders, especially in Asia, Africa, and South America;
    - Small amounts of insight into his relationship with "Tabitha." It is pretty clear to me that their relationship is sexual, but it is totally unclear to me if she is Paige Parker to whom he is currently married and who travels with him on a later, more extensive trip around the world (1999-2002);
    - The black market for all sorts of purposes, chiefly for currency exchange, but also for gasoline and other expendables.

    If you are catching my drift, I felt he tried to cover too much material. Clearly, he is a man of superior intellect, and I suspect he has a great deal to share and he doesn't feel inclined to hold back. The problem for me was just when I was focused on the road conditions in Siberia (or lack of roads), this theme does not carry forward. When you're biking around the world, road conditions would seem to be an imperative topic anywhere that they are problematic. But suddenly, he doesn't mention the roads for quite some time (distance) and you are learning about historic sites, war zones, "Tabitha's" pondering if she should continue the trip, or many other topics.

    I do recommend the book (purchased through Amazon--paperback), because I learned so much about so many varied topics. It is also a credit to Rogers that his economic predictions are often spot-on, even viewed with benefit of hindsight some twenty years after he wrote the book.

  • Rogers does an excellent job of combining travel, history, investments, and political philosophy. Having been in a few of the out of the way countries he visited,the book brought back some memories. If you are a bit open minded, you do not have to agree with him on everything to get a great deal out of this book. For instance, you do not have to be a great fan of motorcycles to find this book fascinating. Strong fans of big government will probably have the most trouble with the book. I'll bet he and George Soros had some interesting political debates while they worked together. Unlike a few readers, I did find Rogers at all pompous.

  • If you enjoy travelogues and investing, this is an excellent book. Jim Rogers has a nice down to earth writing style, and he skilfully matches investment insights and common sense with a visitors unbiased point of view to the countries he visits.

    For himself and his girlfriend to have been the first people to circumnavigate the globe by motorcycle, is quite phenomenal. And as he quite rightly points out - when one rides/drives across a border, one gets a far better feel for the people, the economy, and the political climate than when flies in and has the full “tourist” experience.

    Even though the book is a bit dated as the trip was done in the early nineties, it is still an enjoyable and entertaining read, and many of Jim Rogers insights are just as valid today as they were then.

  • This is an old book so it's really historical. The surprising thing is how wrong he was about so many things. This is a brilliant guy who understands the world better than most of us. Thoughout the book he makes a great number of predictions about emerging nations. Most are wrong.

    The one prediction he totally nailed though was the decline of the United States. Everything he predicted that would happen in the United States has, and it, happening.
