Jim Rogers was a Wall Street legend long before he wrote the first edition of Investment Biker (1995). In the 1970s he made 'more money than I knew existed in the world' managing the Quantum Fund with George Soros. At age 37 he retired. Since then he has invested his own funds, been a finance professor at Columbia University, and hosted TV progrms on WCBS, FNN and CNBC, among many other things. One of his passions is motorcycling, and in 1990 he set out to travel around the world on his bike, to learn about the world's developing countries and investment markets by actually going to them.
