    The Greatest !

    The Greatest investment book I have ever read. Jim Rogers provides real life experiences and advice in the commodities environment. And YES, 'I am an investor.'

    Packed with Knowledge!

    Jim Rogers¿ book is surprisingly similar in tone to those breathless radio ads inviting you to 'invest now' in petroleum futures because bad weather in the northeast is sure to cause a shortage of heating oil. But, Rogers backs up his enthusiasm - dare one say exuberance? - with facts. His record as co-founder of the Quantum Fund speaks for itself. Of course, it doesn¿t take an advanced degree to figure out that as China continues its inevitable lumbering jog toward economic hegemony, its appetite for commodities will become insatiable. Hearing it from someone with Rogers¿ track record, however, gives it immediacy. Rogers seems to be talking to the general investing public, which may explain the awkward chapters that detour through commodity investment basics, but he heads for more advanced territory soon enough. As the founder of the 'The Rogers Raw Materials Index Fund,' he would probably relish a run on commodities. That said, Rogers makes a convincing case, and we strongly recommend his book to those looking to diversify into commodities.

    Hot Commodities: How Anyone Can Invest Profitably in the World's Best Market

    Jimmy Rodgers has done it again. After reading his first two works, I had high expectations for this book. In Hot Commodities, Jimmy posits that we are in the early stages of a commodity bull market and that commodities are less riskier and while offering greater returns than stocks or bonds. I wholeheartedly agree. Drawing on his vast experience and academic studies that support his claims, this well written and approachable text breaches a topic thought out of touch to non-professional investors or traders. After reading this book you will be able to explore and implement ideas to get started in commodities. In fact, how can you have a diversified portfolio without this asset class? Well worth the read and it proves that the investment biker is among our brightest investors (and he seems like a decent person besides). Highly recommended.

    Hot Commodities: How Anyone Can Invest Profitably in the World's Best Market

    Jimmy Rodgers is one of my favorite authors. His blend of technical know how, hands on experience and approachability by the layman make him one of the best financial writers of our time. In this book, Jimmy sets out to prove, supported by an academic study, that commodities are less risky and offer better returns than stocks or bonds. Jimmy also suggests that we are at the beginning of a commodity bull market. Jimmy realizes that this bull market has indeed started and then claims that it could last 10-15 or more years. With careful analysis, using this guide as a starting point, you too can make money in the commodities market. I must say after reading 100's of books and participating myself in the investment world that I agree with the findings of this text. Once again Jimmy has a winner. And I might point out that there is limited romance in this book compared to the previous two books by this author (if you've read his other books, you will understand). I wholeheartedly recommend this book for any investor at any level and do recommend his other books as well.
