    Adventure Capitalist and China Wakes

    Topic: Books - Economics

    I recently read two books that offered perspectives I found worthwhile and were enjoyable to read.

    Adventure Capitalist by Jim Rogers tracked his trip around the world by car. Previously he had documented his around the world motorcycle journey in Investment Biker. His views offer a worthwhile perspective that is often missed, in my opinion. That said I wouldn't accept his views as the final truth they are valuable as one perspective to shed light on areas that are often overlooked.

    China Wakes, by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl Wudunn documents their time as Journalists in China (1988-1993) and again offers valuable insight into China. Obviously even gaining an incredibly oversimplified view of China would take a great deal more than one, or even ten books. Still the authors provide viewpoints that I found added, in a small way, to a picture of what China, was, is and may become. I plan to read their book:
    Thunder from the East: Portrait of a Rising Asia.
