A light and thin perspective on life with a few interesting insights. This book would have been a good on-line article but doesn't make it as a book. At one point the author talks about buying what he thought was a real diamond in Africa only to find out later he had been taken for $500. This is exactly how I felt after spending money to buy this book. Take Jim's advice on investing -- wait to buy this book after the price comes down.

This short bestseller by Jim Rogers, one of the world's most renowned investors, is in the form of a letter offering personal guidance and investment advice to his two young daughters. Rogers co-founded the Quantum Fund with his partner, George Soros, and established a reputation as an authority on economics, investing and markets. In his 60s, he married for the second time and became a father. In this book - written in first person from "your father" with a slight, sweet undertone of talking down to the children's level - he tells his daughters many anecdotes about his experiences to illustrate old-fashioned nuggets of fatherly guidance. He recommends saving money, cultivating good habits, working hard, studying and thinking about the future. getAbstract suggests this book to anyone - including those two fortunate little girls - who would welcome a few paternal life-lessons, some good inside-business stories and a side dish of investment advice.
